From the late 19th century through the end of World War II, tens of thousands of Ukrainians made their way to New York City—and particularly to “Little Ukraine,” as much of the East Village was known. This museum examines Ukrainian Americans’ dual heritage, with a permanent collection made up of folk art, fine art, and documentary materials about immigrant life. Ceramics, jewelry, hundreds of brilliantly colored Easter eggs, and an extensive collection of Ukrainian costumes and textiles are the highlights. To continue the experience, enjoy an authentic lunch at the Ukrainian East Village. You’ll be in awe touring the Fletcher-Sinclair mansion now home to the Ukrainian Institute of America dedicated to promoting the art, music and literature of Ukraine and Ukrainian diaspora.
