What a tragedy! I spend an hour or less in this one floor museum with almost 7000 pieces “cleaned” from Chernobyl place. I saw a kids group getting to know the unfortunately incident with the tour guy explaining to them.

Don’t forget to take with you a tissue 😭.
This is a very detailed, in-depth and incredibly moving place to learn about the terrible disaster that happened in 1986. We visited here prior to a tour of the power plant itself, and this gave us even more information to go with. There is a lot of information and stories to take in!
