Some of the best museum exhibits I've seen - including Boston, New York, DC, Paris, Florence... All so well displayed and labeled - in Georgian and very good English. I especially loved the "treasure room" with all the gold artifacts going back thousands of years. My daughter-in-law (who grew up in Georgia) and I hired a woman to tell us... More

It costs 5 lari to enter and it's certainly worth a visit. I'd recommend starting from the 4th floor w/ the soviet occupation exhibition and work your way down. The best way to get there is to take the metro (liberty square station). The metro is right across the museum.

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.
