Експозиції музею

The exhibitions illustrate the life and activities of prominent historical personalities who played a significant role in the development of the city from 1256 to 1772.

There are the brief but illuminating biographies of notable residents of Lviv, who influenced its history from the time of its foundation in the XIII century to the end of the XVIII century.

We emphasize that Lviv developed thanks to representatives of different communities: Polish, Armenian, Jewish, German, Austrian, Hungarian, Czech and others.

There are 11 exhibits, 600 square metres. We use information panels, maps, texts, iconography, touchscreens, monitors for showing the history. And, above all, there are sculptures of historic personalities to illustrate the history of Ancient Lviv.
