  • One of the most important museums of national art and cultural treasures, the museum was founded by Metropolitan Andrey Sheptytsky in 1905.

    The collections in the museum total more than 140,000 unique items. The museum takes special pride in presenting the largest and most complete collection of medieval sacral art of the XII-XVIII centuries: icons, manuscripts, rare ancient books, decoratively carved pieces of art, metal and plastic artworks, and fabrics embroidered with gold and silver.

    The museum also boasts a unique monument of Ukrainian Baroque style: the Bohorodchansky Iconostasis. 

    Exhibits include:  Ancient Ukrainian art from the XII – XV centuries; Ukrainian art from the XVI – XVIII centuries; and Ukrainian art from the end of the XVIII – to the beginning of the XX centuries. 

    The museum’s building at 42 Drahomanova Street houses the expositions of modern Ukrainian art. They demonstrate the wide range of prominent masters who were at the vanguard of culture and art in the early 20th century. The exposition opens with the works by Trush, Novakivsky, Kulchytska, and Parashchuk, which fully reflect the recent aesthetic searches of the European culture of the beginning of the past century.

    The 20-year-long interwar period is widely represented in the exposition by works of well-known Ukrainian artists including the Selsky spouses, Monastyrsky, Krychevsky, Muzyka, and Moroz. The next sections of the exposition represent the post-war art, including Socialist Realism and the painters of the 60s. The latter’s height of creative activity coincided, on the one hand, with the period of so-called “thaw”, and on the other, with strict censorship and persecution by the totalitarian system. The collection is supplemented by modern works by Lviv artists of late 20thcentury.
