Museum of History and Regional Ethnography

The museum was founded in 1992 in the building of local school.

The exposition is placed in two rooms. The first one has a collection of exhibits from the local history and cultural life. The second one contains the ethnographic collection (old everyday items and personal possessions of the locals).

In the first room visitors will learn a lot about local archaeological researches and historical materials, which cover the history of the village, the local castle and monastery of the 14-17th centuries.

There's a whole stand dedicated to life and work of Markiyan Shashkevych, a famous Ukrainian historical figure. One secton of the stand contains materials on international meetings of schools after M. Shashkevych.

The remarkable part of the exposition is about Havaretska ceramics, a traditional local craft. Here visitors can see the real works of modern craftsmen, as well as historical photographs.

The second room with ethnographic collection has authentic everyday items from the period of late 19th — early 20th centuries. The exhibits available to see: millstones, rakes, spindles, a mortar, a collection of wooden tools (shovel, poker tool, nochvy (local type of trough), spoons, shoulder yoke, etc) and pottery, including items of Havaretska ceramics. The Ukrainian folk embroidery (women's and men's shirts, towels, bedspreads) is also represented well in the museum.

The exposition is constantly being enlarged, not only by the pupils and teachers of the local school, but also by a great number of other community members.

The museum tours are conducted by the schoolchildren.
