In the war for the freedom of Ukrainians that night in the historical Museum “raining blood.”
The various stages of the struggle for the freedom of the people in our land decided to demonstrate during the night of museums in the historical Museum. Yavornytsky. From the beginning, visitors are “immersed” in the sights of his native city showing the film about great men and their achievements over the centuries. And then characters from different eras call men to follow me to go with them the path of liberation.
In this way many victories, but also a lot of grief. Although in the first room do not yet feel it, here the audience transform into ancient actors – someone turns into a tree, and someone in Hercules. Someone voiced the sea, and someone “rustling leaves”, there is even a tool for scoring the stamping of hooves. Visitors gladly transform into their roles and participate in the formulation of antique under the leadership of the Director. He’s at the end of the play sends them into the next era – the Cossack.
“I love our Museum of history and when I go to the gym Cossacks can spend half a day So today I am very glad to be a visitor and participant in the night of museums. We with the sister tonight, open our hearts and give all they filled”, – says member of the “Night of museums” Cossack Siromakh.
There immediately visitors are greeted by the Cossacks fight with the enemies and, of course, Cossacks win. In this room everyone can fight with the Cossack, to feel like a globe, holding a Mace and even sculpt from clay a real cradle. The fun is interrupted by the landlord who calls the Cossacks and the peasants with him into the next room of the eighteenth century.
Here the viewers are trying to enslave and usurp them as peasants. But people are not giving up “beats” of the landlords and even chooses its leader. And with the new leader of the people moving to the next room where in the middle of the Museum exhibits has placed a real ring. Is the ring the real wrestling sparring, the legendary wrestler Ivan Poddubny with his most persistent opponent. Of course Poddubny wins and spectators stand during the first world war, which tell about the Ukrainians were forced to fight on both sides. And show the weapons of mass destruction, which for the first time and began to be used during the First world war.
“Today, I represent the military of the Royal army – 104 Feodosia regiment, senior NCO, instructor of 228 infantry regiment – appears to be clad in military uniforms, the author Vitaly Soloviev. – And my colleague Valeria S. is the first Ukrainian part of the – regiment of Bohdan Khmelnytsky, who later fought for the restoration of Ukrainian statehood, and participated in all the battles”.
With the war almost immediately, the audience is transferred in a Paris cafe to the political exiles who are plotting to revive Ukraine. But while the characters discuss in a Paris cafe there is a loud shot and the eyes nothing the discerning public falls to the floor leader Simon Petlura. So “scary” ends the main part of the tour about the struggle of Ukrainians.
“This year we changed the format. We have a single story line from the first to the last hall – says an employee of the Museum Elena Nerub. – We show the history of our region, where the single line is the struggle of our people for their rights and freedom.”
In the last hall the audience is waiting for “history of the historical Museum” – scenes of the Museum, viewers come first, the governors, the Director of the Museum from different eras and end all, of course, predictions from historians who claim that everything will be fine!
Well, on the way out, on the square near the Museum people meet rousing songs and a fire show. To night at the Museum, people come, this year hundreds of staff and volunteers ready to work for hundreds of visitors and endless “to die”, one at the hands of peasants, who from the bullets of the revolutionary.
“Every year we go to the Night of museums. This time everything is completely different – brighter and more active. I liked that there was plenty of places equipped for a great photo. Like the combat – the Museum is certainly to see did not expect. But this horrible loud shot Petlyura scared everyone!” – says the visitor Dmytruk Antonina.
