The multimedia project “Children…” – martyrology of children killed during the full-scale Russian-Ukrainian war

The multimedia project “Children…” under the arch of the Upper Moscow Gate of the 18th century of the Pechersk Fortress is presented.

It is impossible to estimate the real number of the killed and wounded children, as the occupiers continue the active hostilities. However, the known number of lost lives is reflected in the symbolic account. The names of the dead appear on the symbolic altar, and those who have now turned into angels are watching us from eye to eye.

Ertrance is free.

Working hours:

  • Mon – Fri: from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Praying for the army

The exhibition tells the story of chaplaincy activities in Ukraine – a sincere spiritual service capable of supporting soldiers in difficult times, providing solace, and sometimes even saving lives. Today, more than 200 military chaplains serve in the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the National Guard of Ukraine, and the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine. They wear uniforms and hold not only religious ranks but also military titles. Military chaplains possess military skills, knowledge of security measures, and various types of weaponry, although they do not carry weapons themselves.

The exhibition features 15 personal profiles of military chaplains, including those who recently received mandates and signed contracts with the Ukrainian Armed Forces, as well as those who have been volunteering to bring God’s word to the frontlines since 2014. Three of the represented chaplains have passed away – Father Maksym Kozachyna and Father Oleh Marinchenko were killed by the enemy, and Father Marian Dyus died of severe illness.

The exhibition is created on an interfaith principle, allowing visitors to become acquainted with the stories of military chaplains from different religious denominations, including the Orthodox Church of Ukraine, the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, the Roman Catholic Church in Ukraine, Protestants – Baptists and Pentecostals, imam-chaplains, and the only Jewish chaplain in Ukraine.

We will be glad to see you in the main Museum’s building at 27 Lavrska Street

Redefinition

The Soviet coat of arms, removed from the shield of the "Motherland" monument, is now a museum artifact. The replacement of symbols on the highest sculpture in Europe became the most noticeable moment of the decommunization processes in our society and redefinition of the entire Memorial complex. This summer, by the 32nd anniversary of the Independence of Ukraine, we succeeded in what seemed to be impossible for decades – freed ourselves from the symbol of totalitarianism and oppression. Now this outdated coat of arms is a part of our history, but it no longer defines our present.

Working hours:

  • Monday – Friday – from 10 am to 7 pm. The box office is open until 6:30 pm
  • Saturday –Sunday – from 10 am to 8 pm. The box office is open until 7:30 pm

Sign on the Shield

The exhibition is organized in tight connection with the nationwide project “Trident of the Motherland”, which is purposed for replacement of the Soviet symbols on the shield of the Motherland Monument with the Ukrainian state symbol of Trident. In the broader context, the exhibition resounds with the general reinterpretation of the War Museum and the monument as its dominant object.

In the exhibition space, over 200 authentic artifacts are displayed, covering more than a millennial period of Ukraine’s history. The exposition reveals the most interesting facts from the Trident history, draws attention to the most important stages of its evolving into the state coat of arms. This is a peculiar response to the actual public questions related to the reproduction of the Trident on the shield. It highlights the connection of this process with renaming of the Motherland Monument and the Museum in general.

Especially for this project, the Museum has prepared the new exposition space in the Exhibition Center that consists of three halls. Each of them contains the relevant chapter of the exhibition: “State Sign”, “National Symbol” and “Sign on the Shield”.

French caricatures. Online exhibition
/

On February 24, 2022, russia launched an insidious attack on the territory of Ukraine. Since then, the Museum has received many offers of help and cooperation. Museums and cultural institutions provided their spaces for museum exhibitions about Ukraine’s fight for freedom and democratic values. However, there were artists who donated their works to the Museum. One of them is the French illustrator and cartoonist Regis Hector. He sent the Museum caricatures of his own authorship on the topic of the Russian-Ukrainian war.

We offer art works created by the artist in 2022-2023. These are works that reflect the steadfast resistance of Ukrainians to Russian aggression and their bravery in defending the European future of their country and the futility of the invaders’ plans to dominate Ukraine.
