The museum is quite compact and most if its exhibitions are in Russian language. The entrance fee is quite low and you can pay extra to see a video gram of the blast at Chernobyl power station. The museum tells a story about brave people...More

Very basic and small museum. Three medium sized rooms. Costs about 20 to enter and an extra 40 to take photos. That’s fine as it’s still less than $10US. I did find it fairly poor that then I was asked for another 20 to watch...More

Now I know it was a mistake not taking the english audio guide, but we haven't been offered one and unfortunately we didn't ask. In the museum itself there isn't much to see. Very little things of interest to an average person, some newspapers, old...More

We visited this museum after a 3 days private tour to Chernobyl. The museum houses lots of original exhibits and gives a clear view on what happened that fatal night in 1986. Make sure to take the audio guide.
