Andriyivsky descent is well known for everyone and what about the Museum of Andrew's descent, or as it is officially called, the Museum of One Street? Even not all Kyiv sitizens know about this place. The secret of this phenomena is very simple — few people may think that street can have a Museum.

A full exposition of this small museum filled with historical documents, manuscripts, autographs, antique postcards, photos and lots of interesting old things from houses, which appointment is not clear from the first look. Exploring the exhibits, visitors are immersed in a nostalgic atmosphere of the history, like traveling in a time machine. The museum interior is decorated in the form of streets with signs and buildings, which were located on Andriyivsky descent. Unique "old" atmosphere is achieved by the fact that there is no modern things, occasionally plays an old gramophone, and the lighting is a bit dull and windows in most rooms of the Museum are closed with curtains — nothing distracts you from knowing the history of the street.

Interesting fact. The Museum has a unique cash register "National", which is more than 110 years. All it's mechanisms were designed in such a way that waiters, cashiers and sellers could not steal money from the cash register and the owner saw who and how much earned per working day.

A worthy place of exhibition dedicated to interesting cases, history and urban legends, related to certain homeowners and the houses of the descent. Several Museum showcases tell us about St. Andrew's Church and the mystical Castle of Richard the Lionheart (famous haunted house).

Very interesting, and I can't believe it was all there on the same street . Instead of the guide recommend to use the smartphone - on each window there is a QR code, scanning which you can read all interesting .

Очень интересно, и даже не верится, что все это было там на одной улице . Вместо экскурсовода рекомендую просто воспользоваться смартфоном - на каждой витрине есть QR код, отсканировав, который можно прочитать все интересное .

The Museum about Andrew's descent. The exhibits mainly since the end of 19th and beginning of the 20th century. There is also a historical component, but mostly, of course, is a nostalgic theme for those times, and how the street has changed through different times... the Museum is located at the bottom, almost near the exit to Kontraktova square. The guide to make it easier to find next big Lviv Kavarna (also, incidentally, quite good)...

Музей про Андреевский спуск. Экспонаты в основном времен конца 19 - начала 20-го века. Есть и историческая составляющая, но в основном, конечно, это ностальгическая тема по тем временам, и по тому, как улица менялась через разные времена... Музей находится внизу, практически возле выхода к Контрактовой площади. Ориентир, чтобы легче найти - рядом большая Львовская кавьярня (тоже, кстати, неплохая)...
