Odessa Museum of Steppe Ukraine
Odessa Museum of Steppe Ukraine - a branch of the Odessa Local History Museum
A museum with an identical name existed in Odessa already in 1925 and its expositions consisted of more than 2,000 exhibits collected from Polissya, Dnieper, Podillya, Black Sea and other regions of southern Ukraine.
The Odessa Museum of Steppe Ukraine collected portraits, documents, literature, items and clothes that reflected the specificity of the south of Ukraine - Odeschiny and reflected the importance of development for the whole of Ukraine.
In 1931, the Odessa Museum of Steppe Ukraine was closed due to the termination of the state support for research and "Ukrainization".
Odessa Historical Museum of Local Lore managed to save the lion's share of exhibits and multiplied it in the period from 1950 to 1980.
Finally, in 2006, in honor of the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Museum of History and Local History, Odessa Museum of Steppe Ukraine again opened for its visitors and revived the ethnographic museum as a center for the resurrection of Ukraine's cultural heritage.
