  • Before arriving in Mestia, we even knew nothing about this Museum and of the identity of Khergiani. My parents in their youth were engaged in mountaineering and was advised to go to the Museum this iconic mountain climber. To hike there (20 minutes on foot) I read a lot about Michael (in Svaneti, his name is simply Misha, without names-everyone knows who he is) and hitting in his ancestral home, seeing a tower built by his ancestors, looking out of the window and seeing these mountains around-I realized-he had no others ugogo ways in life. He was just born to conquer mountains, gifted and physically and spiritually .... the man who conquered these forbidding mountains, became a Knight of the British Empire, whose name even is named after the planet was very modest and unpretentious in everyday life. The impression from his home, from his short and bright life left me several days later. There was a sense that we touch something present and eternal ... Thank you Michael for native memory and careful attitude to it, for the pride that Svans bear in their hearts!

  • The Museum houses, in a typical House of Svaneti, the testimonies of life and bold action of a famous climber Mikheil Khergiani, Georgian Soviet born in Mestia and died young in an ill-fated expedition to Italy. The building is well maintained and the documents and objects that belonged to the intrepid climber worthy of reflection.

  • We had the privilege to visit the house of "The Mountain Tiger". He was the best and quickest mountain climber the world has seen. He was a peace loving and caring human he valued other life more than his. A true hero.

  • Interesting house museum of the best Georgian alpinist with nice artifacts and materials
  • To get knowledge of the living in earlier times and about this great worldwide known georgian climber allways a pleasure
  • A must see place! House of a legend with a spirit of mountains and Caucasus!
