Музей історії України у Другій світовій війні


The museum is a memorial complex commemorating World War II in the Pechersk District of Kiev and is on the right bank of the Dnieper River. It is one of the largest museums in Ukraine and has over 300 thousand exhibits centered on the 62-meter tall Motherland statue.

The institution was renamed as a National Museum of History of Ukraine in the Second World War by the Decree of the Ministry of Culture of Ukraine on 16th July, 2015. The staff of the National Museum continues active work focusing all activities on the humanitarian dimension of the global war tragedy.
