Lviv Franko Literary Memorial Museum
Lviv Franko Literary Memorial Museum (Львівський національний літературно-меморіальний музей Івана Франка; Lvivskyi natsionalnyi literaturno-memoriialnyi muzei Ivana Franka). A literary memorial museum established on 10 October 1940 by the government of the Ukrainian SSR in the building in Lviv where Ivan Franko resided from 1902 to 1916, and where he died. The writer’s study has been restored. The museum houses a collection of about 4,000 objects, including Franko’s manuscripts, photographs, correspondence, and printed works, almost all of which are first-edition copies. A branch of the museum was established in 1953 in Kryvorivnia in the house in which Franko spent summers every year between 1901 and 1914.
