On May 26, 2023, teachers of the Department of Digital Economy and Business Analytics I. B. Shevchuk, O. M. Vaskiv and A. V. Zadorozhna together with students of the specialization “Information Technologies in Business” visited the Mykhailo Hrushevskyi State Memorial Museum. It should be noted that the museum began its existence in the years of Independence, when it became open to visitors in 2000.

The exhibition halls of the museum are devoted to almost all stages of the life and creative work of the Ukrainian historian, public and political figure, Chairman of the Central Rada of the Ukrainian People’s Republic Mykhailo Hrushevskyi. Special emphasis is placed on the Lviv period of activity of M. Hrushevskyi (1894 – 1914).

The museum has restored unique interiors – furniture, household items, photographs, documents that take us back to the beginning of the 20th century. The so-called “Hutsul room” of extraordinary beauty is decorated with patterns on the ceiling and walls, it houses a stylized Hutsul stove (the tiles for which were made at the famous factory of the architect I. Levinsky). There is also a department where Mykhailo Serhiyovych often liked to work.

The students got acquainted with documents related to the activities of the Ukrainian Central Council and the Ukrainian People’s Republic. Particularly interesting were the attributes of our statehood of that period, seals, Universals, foreign periodicals, the columns of which tell about the events of the Ukrainian Revolution.

In the showcases of the museum were presented contemporary editions of “History of Ukraine-Rus”, a ten-volume work on which Mykhailo Hrushevskyi began work in Lviv, and other works: “History of Ukrainian Literature”, “Illustrated History of Ukraine”, “World History”. The unique map of 1918 shows the map of Ukraine during the period of the Ukrainian People’s Republic.

It should be noted that the merits of Mykhailo Hrushevskyi as a scientist, public figure, and patriot of his country are invaluable.
