  • The museum complex is a large territory and includes the Botanical Garden, the temple and the palaces Dadiani. All this former residence of the rulers of the Mingrelian kind of Dadiani. Now fully restored, the so-called Palace of Princess, built in 1873-78 Gg. for Princess Catherine Dadiani. It works very interesting Museum exhibition from the collection of Dadiani. Interior, furniture, a huge library, tableware, paintings, as well as the personal belongings of the Dadiani family. Of particular interest is the one of three death masks of Napoleon. The Palace itself was built in the late 19 century and perfectly preserved.
