  1. Дуже хороший музей! Дякувати треба Ніні Саєнко, дочці художника О.Саєнка,що створила цей музей! Про дорозі в Качанівку – заїдьте на годинку, Вам сподобається!

  2. Люблю цей музей, люблю його засновницю і невтомну сподвижницю – дочку О.Саєнка – Ніну Саєнко. Так хочеться, щоб усе нею започатковане жило і дихало теплом і талантом її батька – Олександра Саєнка.

  3. Обожнюю цей музей, це справжня скарбниця шедеврів. Зібрана в ньому колекція викликає в мене дивні почуття еротичного характеру.
