The Poltava Regional Museum is a gem inside and out. The tiles and architecture in and out are exceptional. Inside, I enjoyed the historical and natural history displays and there is certain types of 'traditional' artistry on display as well. There are displays of artifacts...More

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.

Do not be put off by the mis-translation of the museum's name. It is not the local 'lore' museum ! It is the Poltava local museum - i.e. everything about Poltava and the region. Very comprehensive.

I went in here not sure what to expect and I was surprised when I began to view the exhibitions about how many and well everything is displayed. I will say no more I don't want to spoil your surprise.

I really enjoyed the museum even though everything is presented in Ukrainian or Russian. The quality and quantity of displays was way better than I expected. The history and development of the Poltava region is represented nicely with displays of history, battles, city, home life,...More
