From the late nineteenth century through the end of World War II, tens of thousands of Ukrainians made their way to New York City—and particulaly to "Little Ukraine," as much of the East Village was known. This museum, which opened in 2005, examines Ukrainian Americans' dual heritage, with a permanent collection made up of folk art, fine art, and documentary materials about the immigrants' lives. Ceramics, jewelry, hundreds of brilliantly colored Easter eggs, and an
extensive collection of Ukrainian costumes and textiles are the highlights. If you're feeling like a little Ukrainian food to continue the experience, the nearby Veselka diner awaits.
