The Ivan Franko Museum is devoted to the life and work of Ivan Franko, a 19th century Ukrainian writer, poet, translator, linguist, and social activist. Despite having obtained his doctorate, he was unable to secure a teaching position and relied on his writing for income. Franko was interested in the folk legends and folk songs of his people. He collected over 30,000 songs, many of which found their way into the works of noted composers. The Museum also contains musical instruments, ceramics, woodcarving, glass, tapestries, etc., many typical of the area in which he lived.
The museum is located within the Ivan Franko Manor, a multi storey seniors residence on McGregor Street.
