  • A very interesting place, the opportunity to learn in one place many interesting things about life and ancient traditions of various ethnic groups in Georgia. This open-air museum, Park soon, each ethnic group is represented by a separate House, with all the household and utensils. Excellent guides very good and interesting to tell about life, customs and history of the people, answer all the questions. In some days of entertainment in which you can yourself try all sorts of traditional crafts (such as pottery, blacksmithing, etc) very much, stayed for a long time. Recommend that you plan to go here for the whole day, you won't regret it.

  • Combined trip in January on chepepash'e Lake with an ethnographic museum. To attend his course is better in the summer. Because open most of the houses in winter not so much open houses, and no entertainment available in the summer. Such as modeling clay tableware, blacksmith, etc. The Museum, in those homes where tour guides were all very interesting told once seen that people love their job:) very cool there just walk, offers excellent views of the city. If you want to get acquainted with the culture and lifestyle of Georgia of different centuries, you for sure here

  • Who likes museums, is the perfect place for such. I thought that there would be open more homes, but some were closed. Need to take water with you, and then ask the guards so unbearably hot. Minus that no fountains with water as the Tbilisi. Further, if you drive on the road, you can see the Turtle Lake. Excellent guides in the Museum, in each House. The friendly. The truth is, I can't imagine how they survive in such heat. But you can learn many interesting things about how Georgians lived in different parts of the country.
