Private museum of Tripolie culture «Ancient Aratta-Ukraine» is located on the Dnieper bank in Trpolie village. Just there more than 100 years ago Kiev researcher of local history and archeologist Vicenty Khvoika uncovered the most ancient in the world Aratty state (today more famous under the name Tripolie archeological culture), which emerged one and a half years earlier than Egyptian one and existed more than 3500 years, spreading from Black sea to the Danube on the modern territories of Ukraine, Moldova and Romania.

Museum possesses a collection of more than 2 thousand unique exhibits: routine and ritual ceramics with original ornament (in particular famous binocular vessels), work tools (stone fighting hammers, copper spearheads, bone needles). You may watch there a short movie about Tripolie civilization showing reconstructed 3D model of Tripolie settlement. In the yard of the museum you may also see the reconstruction of wooden two-floored huts and augmented copies of the women figurines, sculptured by Tripolians.

How to get there

From the metro «Vydubich» by route-taxi «Kiev-Stajki», «Kiev-Rjishev», «Kiev-Bukrin», «Кiev-Кanev» (via Rjishev) till the station «School-internat» in Tripolie.
