Kyiv History Museum was created on November 14, 1978 and was opened in the first quarter of 1979 in the House of Peter I on Podil (Konstantinivska Street, 6/8). The Museum collection at that time consisted of the archaeological materials transmitted from the Institute of Archaeology of the Academy of Sciences of the URSR, ethnographic and numismatic collections, collection of icons, old books, postcards, gifts from enterprises, institutions and residents of Kyiv. 
In a short period of time the museum's funds increased to 36 thousand units.
Due to the lack of exhibition space only 5-6% of exhibits were exhibited, so the museum was moved to Klov Palace (an architectural monument of the national significance of the XVIII century located on the Pylyp Orlyk Street, 8) and was opened on May 26, 1982, on the day of celebration of the 1500th anniversary of the city. The Museum was located in Klov Palace more than twenty years and had 18 exhibition halls and an assembly hall, administrative offices and fund storages. During this time the Museum gained the fame of one of the best cultural and educational institutions of the capital of Ukraine and became a visiting card of ancient Kyiv. However, according to the order of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine the building of the Klov Palace was transmitted to the Supreme Court of Ukraine.
On June 06, 2012, under the pressure of the public the building of the shopping and office center near the metro station Teatralna on Bohdan Khmelnytsky Street was transmitted for use by Kyiv History Museum. Kyiv History Museum reopened exposition and exhibition activity and now functions as a Museum and Exhibition Center “Kyiv History Museum”.
