ABOUT

The Museum’s holdings of Ukrainian folk art include one of the most important documented collections outside of Ukraine.

 

It features wedding and festive attire from various regions of Ukraine, ritual cloths (rushnyky) and kilims, and a broad selection of richly embroidered and woven textiles that exemplify regional diversity in their embroidery and weaving techniques and in the evolution and beauty of their design.

 

This unique collection also includes ceramics, metalwork, brass and silver jewelry, decorative wood objects, and an outstanding collection of Ukrainian Easter eggs (pysanky).
