The Republic of Georgia is an amazing country with rich history. I've been in a village where people lived in 3000 BC and buildings with solar panels. The Georgian National Museum covers all of this in one building. In particular, I found the coin room amazing, where you can see coins used in Georgia from BC times to more modern... More

A small, moderately OK museum. But totally unacceptable revisionism to ignore the local monster's (Stalin) role in the atrocities. For some forty years he was the lead murder. Why not some acknowledgment? Rest of museum is mediocre.

We concentrated on the highlights of this museum, the Treasury and the 3rd floor very moving history of Soviet rule, repression and resistance. Both were superb. In the Treasury don't miss the exquisite tiny 3 BC gold lion and jewellry and the intricate 2-3 BC rings with horses.

The museum is very clean and you'll find tons of arts, but not that much from Georgia. The goal is to get a lot of foreign arts... They have discount for students, ask for it.

Dear readers, That's an excellent and interesting museum. I'm glad we went! You see how they use to live life and how they made wines and carpets, cloth. You will see lots of old houses. All my family found this an extraordinarily museum- that's a must see place. Thank you to our tour guide Jamal who took us there.

This museum was good and was very interesting to see the ancient gold ornaments, crown etc.. However, we cannot spend much time and the english speaking guide was very fast..she is used to it.. Only two halls were shown. Other two rooms were locked. No photograph allowed in the premises.

This museum needs more time than we had budgeted...2 hours? The displays are signed in English, are displayed with care, and show the artifacts unearthed in the country. This is a museum that is worth your time.
