The Ivasiuk Memorial Museum in Chernivtsi is a scientific, cultural and educational place. It was founded on the 13th of September in 1995. It was the 25th anniversary of the release of Ivasiuk's song "Chervona ruta (Red monarda)" in Chernivtsi. The museum is located in the former apartment of Ivasiuk's family (they lived here from 1971 to 1995), Ivasiuk lived here from June 1971 to August 1972. The permanent exposition was opened on the 4th of March in 1999 (his 50th birthday).

There are 14 thousand artifacts in the museum's main collections. The collection houses a violin and a piano that once belonged to Ivasiuk, his presents, pieces of furniture, autographs and of course Ivasiuk's music sheets. You can find notes to his most favourite songs — "Chervona ruta (Red monarda)", "Vodohrai (The fountain)", "Balada pro malvy (A mallow flower ballade)", "Dva persteni (Two rings)", "Ya pidy v daleki hory (I will go to the distant mountains)", etc. There are also Ivasiuk's books, personal letters and drawings (such as "Father's portrait" and "Sister Oksana") and some documents from the 1930s that belonged to his parents.

The museum hosts three big exhibitions — "Mykhailo Ivasiuk's study room", "The Ivasiuk" and "Volodymyr Ivasiuk's study room". An expo board "Spohad, shcho ne poverne (The memory that won't come back)" is devoted to life and work of V. Ivasiuk.
The museum promotes the works of the composer Volodymyr Ivasiuk and the writer Mykhailo Ivasiuk (Volodymyr's father) who published 15 books. Since 1997 they organize a region competition for young composers. There is also a contest for readers (they read M. Ivasiuk's books) starting from 2002.
