So glad to see such interesting place in Kiev. Modern, informative and good located place. It takes about 2-3 hours. I was there in November 2016 By the way, there is a big cool area for children

I happened into the Mystetskyi Arsenal while taking in some sights around the Pechersk neighborhood recently and I loved my visit. The exhibits on display change regularly so understand that you might not see exactly what I did. On my visit there was a UNICEF-sponsored exhibit about how the local population (especially children) are affected by the separatist violence in... More

I really enjoyed the exhibition at the Arsenal this month. It wasn't crowded and it was pleasant to be able to take our time and appreciate the artist's work.

This place is really pricey just for an art exhibition, and if you are a class of school going there, prepare your money to be gone ! This is not worth at all ! This is the place that will make you waste your time instead of playing paintball, air-soft, playing with some friends or just playing video games. This... More

I liked this. Many different Ukrainian products here. Although, I didn't really care for the 40 grivna admission ticket. It's strange to pay that to go into a market.

Mystetskiy arsenal = Art Arsenal. Yes - it's just young. Yes, it's budding and ambitious. Yes, maybe sometimes it's not featuring the best, most ancient antique or the most trendy, the most striking novel art, one would expect to see downtown European capital. But it is a great initiative in the formation. Just like Ukraine itself, Arsenal is trying to... More

The concept of this monster has been unclear since its very establishment. The original idea of “gathering the best from around Ukraine” (i.e. to “possess” the best artifacts from the museums all over the country and transfer them to this new creature) has luckily failed. And ever since then they were in search of what they actually were and what... More
