The O. Novakivsky Art and Memorial Museum (a department of the Andrey Sheptytsky National Museum in Lviv).
In March 1972, on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of O. Novakivskyi's birth, solemnly celebrated by UNESCO, the museum was opened in the artist's studio. Its expositions are housed in the former villa and creative studio of the Polish artist Jan Stika (1858-1925), which was built in 1889-1890 by Ukrainian builder I. Levynskyi according to the design of architect Y. Zakharevych. In 1907, the house was purchased by Metropolitan Andrey Sheptytsky and the following year he donated it to the National Museum. In 1913, O. Nowakiwsky settled in the house, moving here from near Krakow at the invitation of Bishop Andrey. On the initiative and with the financial support of the Metropolitan, in 1923-1935, the first Ukrainian Art School in Galicia, run by the artist, operated in O. Novakivskyi's studio.
Climbing the steep staircase to the second floor, we find ourselves in the artist's studio, where the museum's permanent exhibition is displayed. Here you can see the main paintings of the artist and feel the atmosphere of his creative laboratory, which offers a beautiful view of Sviatoyurska Mountain.
