Museum of Lutsk Brotherhood

Museum of Lutsk Brotherhood  is the only one museum in Ukraine dedicated to a separate fraternal organization. It is located in the old building of a former fraternal monastery. The museum represents the activity of a fraternity that united the efforts of princes, nobles, burghers and peasants to revive the positions of Orthodoxy in Volyn. Among the exhibits are documentary materials, works of art by Volyn painters, including portraits of the most prominent figures of the fraternity: Bishop Afanasiy Puzyna, icon painter Yov Kondzelevych, public figure Danylo Bratkovsky.

Particularly noteworthy are the old books of 17th-19th centuries from the library of Lutsk brotherhood, documents of financial activity, metric books of the Church of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross of XX century. The most valuable “exhibit” of the museum is  the authentic interior masonry of the fraternal monastery. An ensemble of monastery furniture of the late 18th-19th centuries is partially restored in the museum halls. Original items of church use from the collection of the Volyn Regional Museum are displayed in the showcases. Due to the volume scheme-reconstruction of fraternal real estate objects in the cosmic picture of modern Lutsk, museum visitors have the opportunity to personally look into the historical microtoponymics of the Volyn capital. In the dungeon of the сhurch there is a unique necropolis, where 49 brothers and sisters are buried. Visit to it is only possible with a guide.

Museum of Lutsk Brotherhood  offers a series of thematic excursions of the scientific, cognitive and educational directions and separate lectures on the Volyn regional study.
