Even it seems to be a small museum (3 exhibition halls) you can stay in there for hours. You can follow all the chronicles, listen to many voices, watch short movies and look up your own town (Ukrainian/Belarusian towns) at the interactive tools. I highly...More

Entrance to the museum is 10UAH (~£0.35) and an audio tour is 50 UAH with a 100 UAH deposit (~£1.75 and £3.25). As everything is in Ukrainian, there's definitely no point in going without the audio tour. The audio tour last around 2 hours and...More

This museum was a real eye opener to those who were around when the disaster happened and for those who were born after. The audio guide was absolutely essential - costs about 50 or 100 UAH I think and is available in at least 5...More

I saw this museum my first day in Kiev, and didn't understand some of it. After spending two days in Chernobyl, it would have been more valuable experience. They do have headsets in English. Somewhat austere and sad. We have learned so much since this...More

Yes, this is a museum to visit for everyone to understand how deep was the tragedy of Chernobyl. And how it is still nowadays. For foreign quests I would recommend to take a tour. Sorry, but it is very hard to write a review. Every...More

Place is dedicated to people affected by disaster (both who were working and living there) so it makes you stop and think about the personal tragedies caused by Chernobyl disaster. Make sure to get audio guide because most of the stuff is in local language....More
