Lviv’s impressive history museum was founded in 1893 and last month saw costumed drama in the museum’s Italian Courtyard surroundings to celebrate 115 years in business. The museum holds a number of particularly noteworthy artworks including rare portraits of Habsburg nobility Lviv historical masterpieces from the early modern period. US Ambassador William Taylor was on hand during celebrations to offer his congratulations along with an offer to help fund important icon restoration work which the museum is currently carrying out.
