  • A modern museum. Nice things to see (icons etc.). Dark inside to preseve allt the old stuff. If you have time: do this.  more »
  • A modern museum that is perfectly set up to take you through the history of the region. Though only small it gives a fantastic overview. Worth a visit after a hike and before a beer.  more »

  • Small renovated museum with explanations in Georgian and English. Nice building. Free entrance on 18 May (Museum Day).
  • It's a very nice museum. If you are in Mestia and you're interested in Svaneti culture and the history of this region and the Svan people, you need to visit this museum. It's absolutely worth it!
  • A surprisingly modern museum featuring local historic artifacts. There are English descriptions for all the artifacts and they are very well translated. Would definately recommend if you're in Mestia. Be sure to ask where it is as it is a bit confusing to get to.
  • Just a regular boring ethnography museum. Wifi is good!
  • Impressive museum for small town. 5 Gel per person. It is in otherside of river. Spectacular view from its window :)
