petit musée(grand pour la georgie) avec plein de choses intéressantes et surtout variées et étonnantessmall with lots of interesting and especially varied and amazing things (great for Georgia) Museumshow original
The "Soviet Occupation" exhibit I found very interesting and well presented with explanations in English. The guide who explained things in the "Archaeological Treasure" exhibit was also very good. Other areas I visited were not as interesting to me.
Love the numistic collection with coins dating back several thousand years, and the treasury which has some very nice jewellery and burial pieces. Also happy to find a small but fine collection of Asian Art. I like that the museum offers both Eastern and Western pieces that not only has a long history but are a delight to view.
It is a big shame for a National Museum to get closed in order to organize aperetifs and a private tour for National Geographics. Of course, you can do it, but after the opening hours. No notice on the web page. People coming to enjoy some art just meet the sign on the door lying that it is closed for "technical reasons" and see people eating and drinking in the museum. A big DISRESPECT!!
This is unbelievable, especially for NATIONAL museum, to close during official opening hours to entertain private company. On May 15 National Geographic had aperitifs and private tour, closing museum to visitors. Numerous normal guests were turned away without any sorry and in rather rude way. Most ridiculous that there were no notice on website, just lying piece of paper at the entrance "for technical reasons". In other normal country, management would resign or get fired by public, total shame!!!
Rather poorly managed one. Behaviour and attitude to visitors is below world standards. Collection and its presentation are questionable too.... Not worth time and money
