3.4/5 based on 300+ 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.

  • "Stalin is the most prominent mediocrity of the party" L. D. Trotsky The museum shouldn't be dedicated to Stalin, but to the enormous bureaucracy that he's promoted. This bureaucracy has eliminated all those who hindered as the Commission of control which was precisely there to monitor bureaucrat's derivatives , then all those who have made the revolution. 70 years later this bureaucracy collapsed. She was sentenced in advance
  • Must see for those who enjoy Soviet era atmosphere.
  • Poor museum, even though my georgian and russian language skills are below top quality, I missed context information for the almost randomly presented material. The whole museum appears to be far from crtitical towards Stalin and is therefore politically and historically misleading and unsatifying.
  • Interesting to see! Still retains its Soviet-era characteristics. Worth a visit.
  • Nice place to see
