Two museums in the Netherlands now have Ukrainian-language audio guides
Ukrainian-language audio guides started functioning in two museums in the Netherlands, thanks to the support of Ukraine’s First Lady, Olena Zelenska.
“Almost 100,000 Ukrainian temporary migrants arrived in the Netherlands. Almost half of them have already found work, attempting to support themselves in a new location until they can return home. And where the Ukrainians are, our language is audible,” according to Zelenska on Telegram.
Now, visitors to two Dutch museums will be able to get acquainted with their exhibitions in Ukrainian. The first is the Maurits Cornelis Escher Museum in the Lange Voorhout Palace. “Even those not engaged in the art are familiar with this artist’s works because his engravings are full of paradoxes, analogies, playing with space, and optical illusions,” Zelenska explained. And the second one is Museum Bredius, presenting an exceptional collection of artworks from many eras that once belonged to the collector and philanthropist Abraham Bredius. Last fall, a previously unknown work by Rembrandt was discovered there.
