The establishment of The Ukrainian Museum is considered by many to be one of the finest achievements of the Ukrainian immigrants in the United States. The Museum was founded in 1976 by the Ukrainian National Women's League of America, Inc. (UNWLA), and its purpose is to preserve, interpret and present the rich cultural heritage of the Ukrainian people. Through exhibitions, scholarly study and documentation, educational programs publications and community related events, the Museum shares the remarkable scope and diversity of the Ukrainian culture with its public.

The Museum's holdings of Ukrainian folk art include one of the most important documented collections outside of Ukraine.

It features wedding and festive attire from various regions of Ukraine, ritual cloths (rushnyky) and kilims, and a broad selection of richly embroidered and woven textiles that exemplify regional diversity in their embroidery and weaving techniques and in the evolution and beauty of their design.

This unique collection also includes ceramics, metalwork, brass and silver jewelry, decorative wood objects, and an outstanding collection of Ukrainian Easter eggs (pysanky).

The fine Arts Collection comprises of paintings drawings, graphic works, and sculptures created by Ukrainian artists who worked in Ukraine, Europe, and the United States.

It includes one of the more important collections of the well-known primitif artist Nikifor (1896-1960), probably the largest collection of paintings and watercolors of Ukrainian artist and architect Vasyl Krychevsky (1873-1952), and nearly all of the works created in the United States by sculptor Chreshnovsky (1911-1994).
