The Ukrainian History and Education Center

The Ukrainian History and Education Center is situated at 135 Davidson Avenue in Somerset, New Jersey 08873, and it is dedicated to the preservation and education of Ukrainian culture. It is readily accessible from the metropolitan regions of New York and Philadelphia, either by vehicle or public transportation. Take a look at the instructions. Please remember that the entry is wrongly labeled as “Executive Drive” on Google Maps. The entry road is nameless, and Executive Drive is, in reality, the next street over from where the traffic signal is located.

Presently view shows are generally open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., with limited special weekend hours and group tours available by appointment only. For further information, please check the exhibition page.

Ukrainian Cultural Center is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting Ukrainian culture.

The Cultural Center is the enormous structure just across from the large parking lot on Davidson Avenue, directly opposite Davidson Avenue. The entry is on the right as you ascend the steps, and an accessible entrance is available on the other end of the building by prior arrangement.

There is a library and a gallery.

The library and related gallery are housed inside the Consistory Structure of the United Order of Catholics in the United States of America, the building immediately across the street from the Cultural Center’s main entrance. The position of the leading public access is shown by the word “Entrance” on the map to the right of this text (note that the doors opposite the Cultural Center are staff entrances and are typically locked). When leaving the Cultural Center, go around the corner of the Consistory Building, past the tiny parking lot, and up the stairs on the right to reach the main entrance. They can accommodate people who cannot negotiate stairs using the ground-level staff entrance. Don’t hesitate to contact them if you are in this situation.

The new museum building is still under construction and is not available to the public.

Using its museum and archives, the Ukrainian History and Education Center seeks to bridge the gap between generations by presenting the history of Ukraine and Ukrainian-Americans. The Ukrainian Historical and Cultural Center has carried out its mission through alternating exhibitions, public admission to archives, academic and cultural programming, and online resources that improve appreciation of Ukrainian history and culture among non-Ukrainians and assist Ukrainian Americans in better understanding their ancestors. This facility, which has been known since the 1960s as The Museum and Archives of The Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the United States (sometimes referred to as the “Museum in Bound Brook”), was officially recognized as a separate and distinct 501(c)(3) organization by the Internal Revenue Service in March of this year.
