Poltava Art Museum was founded on the 27th, April, 1919. It started its work from the picture gallery opening in landlord V. Balyubash palace (by architect P. Alyoshin, 1912). The base of the museum collection is the works of famous artist - itinerant N. Yaroshenko, who was born in Poltava. This museum is named after him.
In 1999 Art Museum (Art gallery) moved to a new hall (by architect J. Oleinik). There are more than 9’000 art exhibits there. Among them can be found works of West-European bright artists (Clara Peters, Marcello Bacciarelli, Francesco Lazzaro Guardi), Russian and Ukrainian artists (Nikolai Pymonenko, Opanas Slastion, Grigory Myasoyedov, Ivan Shishkin, Ilya Repin).
