The Pokrovsky Historical Museum presents a rich collection of archaeological artefacts found in about 300 mounds and 100 settlements of different times. Especially valuable are the findings from the time of the timber-grave culture (14-13 centuries BC). After Russia's full-scale invasion in February 2022, the museum had to close its doors to visitors. Since then, employees have been working to preserve the museum's collection: all exhibits have been dismantled and the collection has been evacuated. But the most famous exhibit of the museum remains visible on the city’s arm: the swallow. just like on the breadcrumbs made by the hands of Mykola Leontovych’s (composer) father. Now one of the key aims of the museum's work has become grant activities.
