About the Museum:
The permanent collection is comprised of historical regional apparel, household textiles, kylymy (rugs), rushnyky , archival items including books, postcards, letters, photographs, a collection of pysanky (decorated eggs), and handrafted wooden items.
Mrs. Anhelina Pawlik provided the leadership in founding the Museum in 1950 and was presented with the "Prix Manitoba Award" in 1992 for contributing to the heritage sector.
Our gift shop features masks and totes which incorporate vintage embroidery, as well as books, pysanky (decorated eggs), beeswax candles, greeting cards, ceramics, etc.
The current exhibit focuses on Ukraine’s rich history of women in political, cultural, educational and religious roles, and notable Ukrainian Canadian women who were inspired by their predecessors. We showcase a broad spectrum of women: an astrophysicist, a Sainted Queen who introduced Christianity to Ukraine, an opera diva, a French Queen and a Canadian Senator.
You can visit an online version of the full exhibit on our website https://umcmb.ca or we would be pleased to give you an in person tour.
