  • Very informative and interesting in my opinion. Get the audio device in your desired language and just dive right in! As a person that doesn't like museums-I enjoyed this one because I am interested in the topic and the museums is not very big.
  • One of the most amazing museums i have been. I strongly recommend renting an audio guide. Also there are much more original objects than the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone itself. A bucket list museum for those visiting Kyiv.
