Now from anywhere in the world you can take a virtual tour of Ukrainian open air museums.

In partnership with the Ministry of Culture of Ukraine, Google digitized seven museums in different regions of Ukraine and created a special website “Museums of Ukraine in the open air,” where you can take a virtual tour and learn interesting facts from the history of Ukrainian culture. With its 360-degree panorama you can not only stroll the museums and explore the surrounding area, but also look inside the houses and see the museums’ exhibitions.The project is part of a campaign “Authentic Ukraine.”
