As reported by Censor.NET citing the press service of the Dnipropetrovsk Regional State Administration, the display was created by the efforts of volunteers, ATO participants, historians, museum workers, artists, designers, regional associations of the ATO participants, and the Dnipropetrovsk Regional State Administration.
The Museum's open-air exhibition is called "Travelling the roads of the Donbas". It brought together about 400 exhibit items. A paved road stretches though the exhibition. There is decommissioned military equipment which was used in battles in the Donbas on its both sides including APC, ambulance, anti-aircraft gun, military SUV, tank turret. There is also a sculpture of a little girl giving an apple to a soldier among the display items. Its creation was inspired by a true story that happened to soldier of the 42nd Battalion Ivan Pohorilyi.
One can also see the Ukrainian army checkpoint deployed in the village of Pisky and debris from the Donetsk airport at the exhibition. The museum workers and ATO participants are running walking tours over the display. Discharged soldiers and school children were among the first visitors to the museum.
Construction of the second part of the exhibition of the ATO Museum is underway. It will be dedicated to the stories of volunteers, soldiers, paramedics, and ordinary residents of the region. Military uniforms, medals, and items that have saved peoples' lives will be featured in the exhibition. The museum is planned to be fully operational by the end of the year.
