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A full exposition of this small museum filled with historical documents, manuscripts, autographs, antique postcards, photos and lots of interesting old things from houses, which appointment is not clear from the first look.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).
