The Historical Complex of the Andrey Sheptytsky National Museum in Lviv The renewed permanent exhibition "Ukrainian Art of the Twentieth Century", located in the historic museum complex of the Andrey Sheptytsky National Museum in Lviv at 42 M. Drahomanova Street, is a continuation of the exhibition of Ukrainian art of the twelfth and nineteenth centuries, which is located in the main building of the museum (20 Svobody Avenue). The exhibited works represent the development of Ukrainian artistic culture in line with the main styles and trends of twentieth-century world art.
In 1911, for the needs of the Church Museum (1905), the museum's founder and patron, Metropolitan Andrey Sheptytsky, purchased the villa of Lviv University professor Emil Dunikovsky at 42 M. Mokhnatskoho Street (nowadays known as Drahomanova Street) (1896-1898, architect - Vladyslav Rausch). Later this building became the main center of the National Museum in Lviv (the name of the institution since 1911). On December 13, 1913, the first exhibition of the National Museum in Lviv was opened here, during which Andrey Sheptytsky solemnly proclaimed the gift of the museum to the Ukrainian people. In 1930-1935, the side wing of the museum was completed: a two-story building in the style of functionalism was built according to the design of Lviv architect and engineer Oleksandr Pezhansky.
Since 2022, the exhibition has been closed to visitors. The museum conducts educational work: thematic classes, museum lessons and master classes.
