Visited there twice, once in Oct 2013, my first time in Poltava, then again on Fri 26 Aug 2016. It felt cool in October, but stuffy and muggy in August( It was like that throughout Ukraine that when summer comes, there's technically no air conditioning in the museums but there are elec. fans like those in China.

We went there to help me learn more about Poltava history and very happy with my visit. Went with a translator, found there was a lot of great things to learn about and see. The building design and architecture was very facinating to me, such a unique building to me.
There are some interesting exhibits from mammoth fossil skeleton through to Chernobyl. There are some English speaking guides available at times. I was guided by my fiance and her translator but as I am learning the language I tried to do some on my own.

It took us about an hour or more to make our way through this museum, which is very old and quite large. It has a wide variety of artifacts on display (not only local ones), some dating back many centuries.

The history and development of the Poltava region is represented nicely with displays of history, battles, city, home life, and culture. Most recently, they have added memorials of the Ukrainian soldiers (from Poltava) that... 更多
