National History Museum of Ukraine

Visited the National History Museum of Ukraine, which discusses history on the territory of modern Ukraine from prehistory to Euro 2012.

Visited the Museum of One Street

The Museum of One Street in Kiev, Ukraine is exactly what the name suggests--a museum devoted to the history of one street, Andreevsky Spusk, and the people who have lived on it. Most of the museum focuses on the early 20th century, but exhibits discuss other aspects of the street's history as well. The context is very much the lives of the people who lived there--writers, rabbis, priests, musicians, upper-class ladies--and the labels are in a mix of Russian and Ukrainian, but combined the museum gives a fascinating glimpse into the history of street and the city as a whole.

Those Rebels John & Tom
