The museum collection is based on the private collections of Kiev patrons of arts. The members of Tereshchenko family (they were well known Ukrainian sugar kings) were the most known patrons of arts in Kiev.
In the courtyard of the museum you can see the monument to Alexander II - the only survived monument to the Russian emperor in the post-Soviet area.
