  • Nice displays, but relatively small considering the age of the Georgian culture. It seemed like it went from 2000 BC to some 18th century clothes and weapons, immediately to the Soviet occupation...  more »

  • A lot of ancient relics and demonstration how much this society was developed with amazing craftsmen and a huge and amazing collection of hand made relics in gold and silver and also amber. A good idea in one of the exhibitions about Georgia fauna . Loved the soviet occupation exhibition, its not a large room but it takes easily an hour if you want to get all the information that they have in there. Amazing. They have students, kids, family packages. The price is 15 GEL px only this National Georgian Museum but 20 GEL if a all day pass for all of them. Advise to go on the morning and use all day cause it´s worth it.
  • Nice visit, worth the trip. Two hours to see it. Nice little snack bar and gift shops. The drawback is that it is a combination natural history museum, with a smaller national museum that does not tell much about the story of Georgia as a nation, kingdoms, history, or culture.
  • Very informative and useful and interesting museum about history of mankind and especially about Georgia. I recommend you to visit this wonderful museum.
  • I loved the displays illustrating the techniques of metalworking. The exhibits were accompanied by videos showing the methods in action by modern metalsmiths
  • It's a mix of a natural history, art and history museum. The part on the Soviet Occupation is incredibly well done and interesting, the rest is very similar to European natural museums and probably only of more than fleeting interest to you if you like seeing a lot of gold artifacts from long ago. Apart from an amazing collection of fossilized skulls the natural history part has just some not too well preserved animals. Student discount is only given to people who have an unofficial student card by some agency. Not to those carrying just one of their university.
