  • It was a very short visit-kill time before departure. but in practice turned out to be very interesting and informative. on a rather large territory gathered from all over Georgia, built the House where real people lived. You can see them everyday, try to "get in their shoes", feel the touch of that era. wonderful pososhh' you will have guides who are in every house. us amazed with what love they told us about the life in every home

  • I recommend to all lovers of history. Nagladno is represented by life and houses from all over Georgia. The old houses were found disassembled in all regions of Georgia transported and assembled again. This place just breathes history of Georgia. ARGO Voyage Georgia/CEO Iya Gedevanishvili

  • Great museum - majority of the houses are real historic buildings, which were moved to Tbilisi from a different regions (disassembled, transported to Tbilisi and then assembled again). Very friendly and knowledgeable staff, willing to share interesting facts about the household peculiarities of different parts of Georgia. There's also a traditional bread baking sessions, taking place around 3PM.
