House of Ukraine is a cultural museum in San Diego providing information to the public about the country of Ukraine.

Our purpose is to promote and cultivate the art, history, customs, language, and traditions of Ukraine. We sponsor educational presentations, demonstrations, and events devoted to Ukrainian culture as well as organize various cultural and fund-raising events. In the museum, you can find displays of cultural artifacts, books, pictures, maps, and ethnic costumes.

The museum is open to the public every Saturday and Sunday from noon to 4pm, and is located in Balboa Park, within the city of San Diego, California, alongside many other art, science, and cultural museums, and is also just a short walk from the San Diego Zoo.

Members of the House of Ukraine offer hospitality to all visitors, foster and cultivate a spirit of understanding, goodwill, and cooperation among the various national groups represented in the House of Pacific Relations International Cottages (HPR), and work to bring Ukrainian culture to the attention of thousands of California residents and tourists every year.

Hosting at the House of Ukraine is the most important service our cottage volunteers provide on Saturdays and Sundays from noon till 5 pm. We always need more volunteers to help out with hosting. If you are able to help with hosting, even if only for a few hours, please take a look at calendar below and pick a date or email us at: [email protected].

Чергування в Українській Хатці є найбільш важливим завданням наших волонтерів, які відчиняють Хатку для відвідувачів по суботах і неділях з 12 до 5 вечора. Нам завжди потрібні нові волонтери для чергування. Якщо ви в змозі допомогти, навіть якщо це лише протягом декількох годин, будь ласка, погляньте на календар внизу та виберіть дату або відправте нам лист за адресою: [email protected]
