The history of local museum in Kremenets began in the mid-thirties of the previous century when Western Ukraine was the part of Polish lands. At that period museum was located in the Kremenets lyceum and was named after local botanist Willibald Besser. Despite that the huge part of museum's exhibits were ruined as the consequences of the Second World War, it has continued its work. Now there are around 700 exhibits.
Museum's exhibition starts with the nature room. Here visitors may get information about formation of the Kremenets region with its unique Kremenets Plateau. There is a belief that on the sea bottom (where currently the Kremenets Plateau is located) were left some minerals that afterwards gave the name "Kremenets" to the whole region. There are teeth of the sea sharks and rays, fossilized mollusks in that room.
Also, one of the richest museum's room is archaeology hall that represents exhibits of the Late Paleolithic times. Specifically, survival kits of Tripoli and Chernyakhovtsy people. What's more, there is the hall with the Middle Age exhibits where visitors can learn more about the attack of the Tartar Yoke.
Besides, there is the museum's ethnographic room that represents such cultural aspects of the South Volyn residents as typical clothes, ornaments, pottery, pysanky and so on. The local museum is also famous for the Taras Shevchenko's hall.
