  • Ivan Franko Lviv Literary and Memorial Museum. There are 26 thousand exhibits in the museum's collection. The most valuable of them are personal belongings of Ivan Franko and his family, the writer's manuscripts, first editions of his works with his autographs, and original photographs.

    For over sixty years people have been coming to this house which stands in a picturesque location in Lviv near Stryisky Park as to a national sacred place. It was in this house that the prominent writer, scientist, political and public figure lived, wrote his best works, and passed away into immortality. Ivan Franko’s study – his favourite room – has been fully restored. The pianoforte at which Ivan Yakovych sat, the table at which he worked – they have all survived.

    Franko’s personal things lie on his desk: an inkstand with a pen, books, Hutsul knife for cutting paper, a chandelier, a box for manuscripts. Behind this desk the writer created hundreds of works including the poem “Moses”. Next to the table beside the chair there is the fishing net that the writer made himself. Franko’s bookcases stand filled with books, while portraits and paintings by Ivan Trush – the writer’s close friend – hang on the walls.
