If you're into war machines, this is the place for you - the collections are incredible. However , only a little if at all information is available in English, basically everything is explained only in English. Still, worth visiting.

The place explains very well the history of Ukrainian people throughout the establishment of the country. Although there are few parts in the museum that are not for children experience.
