Based on the world record nomination from Europe Records Institute (EURI) and Decision No. WK/USA.INDIA/872/2022/No.328, World Records Union (WorldKings) officially declared the Pysanka Museum as the "World's first museum dedicated to the pysanka - Ukrainian easter eggs" on July 12, 2022.
The museum was opened on 23 September 2000, during the 10th International Hutsul festival. Director Yaroslava Tkachuk first came up with the idea of a museum in the shape of a pysanka (Ukrainian Easter egg), local artists Vasyl Andrushko and Myroslav Yasinskyi brought the idea to life. It is also the largest pysanka structure in the world.
The museum is shaped like a giant pysanka, with a height of 14 meters, a diameter of 10 meters and a total area of more than 600 square meters.
The museum has a collection of more than 12,000 eggs and decorative eggs from different regions of Ukraine and countries of the world. Many are modern re-creations of traditional designs, as well as a fine collection of older pysanky from the Ivano-Frankivsk region that date from the 19th and 20th centuries.
The museum also presents temporary exhibitions in its galleries, usually collections of folk or original pysanky by local pysankary.
In 2007 during the campaign “Seven Wonders of Ukraine” Kolomiya museum was assigned to a special category – a monument of modern Ukraine.
In 2017, due to visitor’s high rating, the painted mural Museum received a distinction certificate from the world-famous TripAdvisor traveler site, which contains over 500 million reviews of tourist destinations around the world.
