Acerca del museo

The Andrey Sheptystky National Museum in Lviv is the largest art museum in Ukraine. It was founded as a private foundation by the prominent church and cultural figure and philanthropist Metropolitan Andrey  Sheptytsky under the name "Church Museum." On December 13, 1913, it was ceremonially donated to the Ukrainian people as the National Museum in Lviv. From the beginning, the organization of the museum and the management of the acquisitions was undertaken by its first director, Ilarion Sventsitsky, the well-known scholar in Slavic studies, history and art history.

Today the museum is one of the most important centers in Ukraine dedicated to the preservation, study, and popularization of the achievements of Ukraine's spiritual and artistic heritage. The museum's collections total more than 170,000 items. The museum takes special pride in presenting the country's largest collection of medieval sacred art of the 12th-18th centuries, which contains more than 10,000 items. Equally valuable is the museum's collection of manuscripts, rare ancient books, graphics, as well as Ukrainian paintings and decorative arts and crafts of the 19th-20th centuries. The museum's collection of contemporary art is growing constantly.

The National Museum has changed its official name several times. In December 2005, on the occasion of the centenary of its founding, it was granted national status and given the honorable name of its founder. 

Today the permanent expositions of the Andrey Sheptytsky National Museum in Lviv are organized into the following sections:

- Ukrainian Art of the 12th – early 20th centuries.

- Ukrainian Art of the 20th century

- Memorial Art Museums of Ivan Trush, Oleksa Novakivsky, Olena Kulchytska, Leopold Levytsky.
