Our visit to the water museum exceeded my expectation. It was very informative and our guide was excellent. I learnt a lot - and at the end of the tour there's a playground which you can interactively play with water in many shapes and forms.

It's close to Maidan, so it could be tempting to pay a visit there during your trip, however, most of adults already have an understanding of water usage or aren't really interested in learning. Though this should be fun for kids.

The museum focuses on water refinement and how water is important - basic school stuff. Lots of funny activities for younger children, and check if guide does English tour. I attended a Russian tour, but luckily was together with a Russian talking friend, so I got the most of it.

We are regular visitors of this place, it gives you a general idea of the natural processes water goes through. Adults and kids have never been disappointed since it is not too long and quite informative. Suitable for extending your visit to the puppet show nearby.

Interesting historical place for its role in providing water to the city. Nice location in the park. Museum is interesting though exists need to be updated and expanded. Museum is located inside one of the old water storage reservoirs. Have been many times.

Well organized displays and excellent information in an interesting setting in an old water tower. The hands-on part of the tour is great fun; they should develop more hands-on exhibits. The staff was very helpful and friendly. If you want atour in English rather than Ukrainian just tell them.

Good place for visit with the kids from 10-12 years, but too much of lectures about the water - would be great to see more details and interesting experiments with the water
