Audio guide is recommended. A really interesting exhibition about one of our biggest nuclear catastrophy. A lot of personal real object on the exhibition. It is really data based, but you can discover personal tragedies through this data.
No explanation in English. So you need the Audioguide. If you have been to Chernobyl then don't go to the museum, it's not worth it
The Chernobyl museum covers the story of the accident and the special connections to the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki that also have had to deal with the aftermath of radioactivity. The museum is designed as a tour through the different parts of the story. I would recommend the audio guide (that I skipped myself...) since few of the signs, and none of the artifacts and documents, are translated. In other words, if you don't read the language you have no idea what you are looking at.
Very informative. If you want to learn more about the catastrophy, but can't go on the actual site tour, this is the next best thing.
Very interesting museum with an English tour. The museum had a ton of artifacts that were really amazing.
What a neat little museum. It houses so much history and information in a small little area. My recommendation get the audio guide it has tons of good info on it. I would most definitely come back here again. It opened eyes to one of the world worst nuclear disasters. It also brings to mind the plight on the Ukrainian people that it is still to this day. It will forever be with me in my memory. To all those lost in the fight to contain it. My thanks.
Not a very big museum, but equipped with a lot of unique pictures and a big diversity of material. In front of the museum there are vehicles from that time, I guess they don’t were in use at the plant side. I specially would recommend visiting the museum before any trips to the exclusion zone, despite the fact that some agencies provide promotion codes for a visit after the trip. Beside a normal visit you also can pay to make photos and if you want to go deeper, there are audio guides available in a big variety of languages.
A detailed museum covering Chernobyl powerplant incident. Interesting installation but get ready that most of expositions have descriptions in Ukrainian. Audio guides available for additional fee. The museum is overloaded with details which may be a bit too much for an average visitor. Some fast lane variant would be useful.
It's very good place to visit if you're interested in the catastrophy. Audio guides available in German, English and some other languages. Set to raise awareness and emotions. I was just a little bit surprised that there was almost no interactive exhibits that I kinda expected to see.
Great experience, low prices and a lot of stories. It's possible to get an english audio guide. For me 2 hours were short, for my friends 30 minutes was enough. If you want souvenirs, you have to ask the cashier. Although the cashier didn't speak english, we were able to get everything we needed without a problem.
A fascinating place definitely worth visiting. Nestled in the charming district, sometimes known as "Little Prague", the National Museum of Chernobyl boasts the exposition, containing everything from the 1986 ambulance and utility vehicles to the modern, Chernobyl disaster inspired pieces of art, donated to the museum from all around the world. An audioguide is recommended to rent (50 UAH as of late 2017), in case you are not fluent in either Ukrainian or Russian languages.
This museum is an excellent collection of nuclear disaster information. If you can read Russian and Ukrainian you will get a lot more out of it since there are a lot of documents on display. There are audio guide devices available with English and other languages available. The markers to tell you what number to enter in the device are small, occasionally hard to find, and in some cases non existent. The layout of the materials are logical and very professional. Allow yourself 2 hours. There is an extra charge to take photos.
Great museum with some impressive (and decontaminated) artefacts from the nuclear accident. Quite a few poignant and personal stories from the people involved. Audio tour is available in many languages, but it does go on a bit and the numbers for it can be difficult to see on the displays. However it's a must visit place if you're in Kiev.
Chilling account and images of the Chornobyl disaster and the aftermath. 20 UAH for entry. All documents were in Russian/Ukrainian, however, so as non Russian speakers we were unable to read. A temporary exhibition of the Fukushima disaster was displayed on the ground floor.
This museum definitely has an agenda, the problem is it's kind of hard to figure out what it is. There seems to be an element of the church bashing the soviet union for anti-religous policies, a weird focus on the Japanese nuclear experiences (both Hiroshima/Nagasaki and Fukushima), and absolutely nothing about what actually caused the accident. It's definitely not a quality museum from an academic standpoint, but for a truly bizarre take on Chernobyl, it is definitely worth visiting.
