Day 20 - Toy Museum

Photo from 
I went to the Toy Museum in Kiev with Maddy, Clint, and Mike yesterday. Clint had this paper with a ton of different museums around here on it, and we thought that might be a good choice. It seemed pretty cheap and close by. We had to stop and ask for directions a few times, but finally we found it in the back of this elementary school-looking-place. There was some confusion on the cost of tickets, but after explaining that we were in fact "studient"s (Russian for "student") we only had to pay 20 grivna total for all of us, which we thought was a pretty good deal. But going into the museum, I was a little disappointed. It was a hallway with two smallish rooms branching off with glass cases of toys from various era's in it. There was some pretty cool stuff, but there wasn't anything but my own knowledge and memories of my childhood to add to the museum. At most, it was nice to have the others there, because at least we could compare notes on what we thought of the various toys. Anyways, I'm not recommending this museum for any coming to Kyiv unless you've got 5 grivna and about an hour or less of your time to kill. Still, time and money could be spent way better at a Chocolate Cafe or something instead. :)

PS: Pictures cost 10 grivna to take here AND you can take just about any of them from online! So don't take pictures!
