Stalin Museum, Gori
(3.4/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Dedicated to the life of Joseph Stalin, Stalin Museum charts his life and history, from his birth in a small mud-brick house until his death in 1953. The museum sits on the site of his childhood home--in fact, it contains the small house where he was born under a specially built awning. Presenting a balanced account of his rise to power, the museum has a small room dedicated to political repression during Stalin's regime. Enter the first hall upstairs to learn about Stalin's childhood and to read some of his poetry. Learn about the ruler's relationship with Lenin, which ran from friendship and loyalty to Lenin's public criticism of Stalin's tactics. View a copy of Stalin's death mask, a reconstruction of his office in the Kremlin, and his bulletproof, personal train carriage. The museum offers guided tours in English, German, and French. Using our world travel planner, Shida Kartli Region attractions like Stalin Museum can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Amazing historical museum of stalin. Get a guided tour of your language on spot provided by them. The tickets only cost like 6 or 8 Lari.
  • I must say that this place is very well maintained and run - I would give 5/5 for that - however the whole personality cult around him is just startling. No mentions of his terrible deeds against humanity, only celebration, how great he was etc. Therefore I give 3/5. You must see it for yourself, it's probably only place in the world this unique.
  • When you enter the museum you have the impression that you go back in time 30 or 40 years. The place is well entertain, clean and easy to access, although the content of the museum pieces and information could be subject for improvement. In fact, it lacs this deeper and objective approach. If you pay attention and read everything, you can do the tour in max 1h30. (including the Wagon and Stalin 's home)
  • Quirky, interesting museum that is actively trying to achieve balance in its thus far positive portrayal of Stalin. Definitely worth paying a bit extra for a guided tour: our guide was excellent and gave us a tour of the highlights in the limited time we had available
  • Worth to visit. 10 GEL per person. 5 GEL extra cost if you want to see the Stalin's wagon on the garden. Prices are for October 2016
