About The Ukrainian Museum

Fast Facts

New York City, March 24, 2010 — The Ukrainian Museum is the largest museum in the U.S. committed to acquiring, preserving, exhibiting, and interpreting articles of artistic or historic significance to the rich cultural heritage of Ukrainians.

At its founding in 1976 by the Ukrainian National Women’s League of America, the Museum was hailed as one of the finest achievements of the Ukrainian American community. Today, its unparalleled array of folk art, exceptional collection of fine art, and extensive compendium of archival materials make it one of the most unique and dynamic museums in New York City, with broad appeal for diverse audiences. Each year, the Museum organizes several exhibitions, publishes accompanying bilingual catalogues, and conducts a wide range of public programming, frequently in collaboration with other museums, educational institutions, and cultural centers.

Five years ago, in April 2005, the Museum moved into a new, state-of-the-art facility in the heart of Manhattan's vibrant East Village. Construction of the building was funded by scores of generous donations made principally by the Ukrainian American community.

The Museum's new home, which includes spacious galleries and facilities for public programming, allows it to mount more elaborate exhibitions, to accommodate more visitors, and to preserve and showcase its growing collections.

The Museum’s holdings are grouped into three main categories:
