The building itself used to possess an impressive red brick exterior, but after some questionable and expensive renovation that added the glass extension and re-painted he signature wall...More

There are 5 floors and in typical Ukrainian fashion, you can pay per floor. I did the WW2 one and it was decent. Also a decent amount in English which was surprising!
