If you have some spare time downtown, especially in summer when it is very hot, you can go to the Fine Arts Museum located at 35 Pushkin Boulevard. The museum contains seventeen halls: Russian and foreign art, mainly copies, but also some originals such as Ivan Shishkin's works and Ivan Aivazovsky's marine landscapes.

Donetsk Arts Museum is one of the largest museums in Ukraine and the cultural hub of Donetsk.

It is located downtown opposite the building of the Regional Administration, not far from Shevchenko monument that is located in Artiom Street.

The museum was dedicated on September 23, 1939.

During the Nazi occupation the museum suffered a lot. The Nazi invaders plundered the collections and destroyed the museum itself.

The restored museum was dedicated again in 1960.

The museum contains a lot of replicas as well as original works and gifts from artists.

There are eleven thousand paintings, graphic and sculptural works as well as works of decorative and applied arts.

The 17-hall museum exposition is divided into four sections:

- Russian and Ukrainian art of the 16th – early 20th centuries

- Local art of the 20th century

- Ukrainian decorative and applied arts of the 18th-20th centuries

- West European art of the 17th-20th centirues.

The museum is located at 35 Pushkin Boulevard and is open from 9 a.m. until 4.30 p.m. (except Monday and Tuesday).

Since no photography is allowed at this museum, I simply scanned the museum booklet for you to have an idea.
