Khanenko Museum is a former private mansion of Khanenko family, prominent Ukrainian collectors and philanthropists, which was turned into a museum. In the early 20th century, the Khanenkos’ private art collection was considered one of the best on the territory of the former Russian Empire.
The story of the art collection is quite fascinating because it has survived Soviet and Nazi occupation (nowadays, the museum continues working hard to find and reclaim looted property). We recommend you to read more about it on the museum’s website.
It holds a large collection of European paintings, sculptures and applied arts, rare pieces of fine arts and traditional crafts of Western, Southern and Eastern Asia, art of the Ancient World: Egypt, Greece and Rome, Russian and Ukrainian icons, Ukrainian folk arts, archeological objects.
