And since 2003, the Kiev Water Museum with an official status occupied a worthy place among them. "Water Information Center of Ukraine".
It is located in Khreshchaty Park - a picturesque place of the historical center of the capital in a reconstructed water tower, which is more than 130 years old. The tower is a historical monument of architecture and the main "poileytsya" for several generations of Kiev. A fascinating exhibition of the museum, displaying the water cycle in nature, created in its original form. Here are collected unique exhibits, models, samples of various sewage systems and water towers, ancient pipes, visual aids, giving an idea of ​​the metamorphosis of the fresh water of our Planet. It is interesting that the symbols of the old system of wasteful use of water in the sanitary facilities are "played up".
At the very beginning of the 45-minute excursion there is an acquaintance with the history of the development and formation of the capital's water supply networks, water extraction from ancient times. Then, visitors get acquainted with the expositions presented in seven specialized exhibition areas:
  1. "Nature on the surface of the earth" presents to visitors a picture of the water resources of Ukraine and the entire Earth, the ways of their pollution by man. Here is a unique exhibit - a huge aquarium, showing the section of the Ukrainian rivers with their flora and fauna.
  2. "Nature Underground". Here, visitors descend by elevator to familiarize themselves with the structure of the soil, its value for water treatment, age and movement of land waters, the current model of an artesian well.
  3. "Water intake, water treatment and transportation of water." Here you can trace the entire path of life-giving moisture from water treatment plants to apartments, both in Ukraine and around the world.
  4. "Water use". Here, a comparative chart gives an idea of ​​water consumption per person in different countries of the world. This allows you to see the place of Ukraine in compliance with WHO requirements.
  5. "Plumbing" introduces samples of modern plumbing samples, diagrams of main sewers.
  6. "Wastewater treatment" demonstrates the technology of this process, and with the help of a monitor you can follow the path of wastewater from home to treatment systems.
  7. “The World of Water” is an extravaganza of waterfalls, geysers, glaciers, mirror rivers, thunderstorm rains, with a landscape reproduced from one of the Crimean caves.

One of the differences between the museum of water and traditional museums is that it is allowed to touch all the exhibits. In the game room, children can personally create riverbeds, play with soap bubbles, touch goldfish. Therefore, many people call this museum also an entertainment establishment. After the tour, visitors can again get closer to the miraculous water of the most beautiful pump-room in Kiev, which is located 100 meters from the entrance to this unique museum.
