The museum “Pokuttia” is created to preserve samples of material and

spiritual culture of the region in 2009. It is situated in a historical building

which is more than 100 years old.

Seven exhibition halls contain hundreds of interesting

ethnographic exhibits, embroidered clothes, ceramic items, big

collection of icons and photographs from a hundred years ago.

One of exhibits recreates almost the whole process of production of a homespun

cloth, which will be used to sew clothes and other everyday items such as

bench blankets, carpets, tapestries and many other things.


The collection of embroidered clothes contains tens of embroidered shirts, both female and

male ones.

In 2021 the museum presented a new exhibit – a collection of bricks with stamps. These

bricks are collected on different facilities in Horodenka such as ruins of Horodenka

sugar mill, missionary monastery near the church of Mary`s Immaculate Conception

in Horodenka. Some bricks are brought from Ivano-Frankivsk, where they were

found at the remains of Austrian and Polish houses (the end of 19th century – the 30th

of 20th century).

The address of the museum “Pokuttia”: Horodenka, 82 Shevchenko street.
