Rules of stay at the Franko House

Dear friends, welcome to the Franko House!

We value the fact you choose the museum as a form of pleasant and interesting leisure time spending. It has been over 120 years already that the Franko House preserves its special atmosphere of a family coziness, that our whole team cherishes not less than the memorial items. We often have heated discussions here, loud ovation or fiery laughter are not rare guests in the museum, as the Franko House is full of life. But, plunging into a vortex of emotions, please keep in mind our ethical rules — those that we follow anyway, when visiting someone. These rules are simple, obvious, and focused on our mutual safety, comfort, and pleasant impressions. We are sure it will be easy for you to follow our rules and they will not hinder your pleasant rest.
