One of Ukraine's most extensive exhibitions, National Museum of the History of Ukraine in the Second World War memorializes the Soviet Union's battle against Nazi Germany during World War II and displays a host of military artifacts. Visit the museum and explore its more than 300,000 exhibits dispersed throughout cavernous halls. You'll see weapons, documents, personal effects, and a wealth of other items from World War II. The museum's most famous symbol outside is hard to miss: a 62 m (203 ft) titanium "Motherland" statue depicting a woman with a sword and shield. Don't miss the outdoor exhibitions of military hardware, including armored personnel carriers, Cold War-era jets, and even some brightly painted tanks.

  • The museum is located on the top of hill and the monument has an amazing view. The museum has impressive curation.  more »

  • Co.e here to enjoy great views. This is definitely a place to make a lot of beautiful photos. During the summer around 9 o'clock you can adore the sunset all over the hills. Take some bread with you if you want to feed duck family. And also don't forget to take water because the nearers shop is not that close.
  • The museum has got some renovations and looks a bit better than before. Some people say you can enter the head of the Mother Motherland monument and from there you can see amazing views of Kyiv, but I never have been there. Need to try it ones.
