Georgian National Museum (Saqartvelos Erovnuli Muzeumi) Tours and Activities

Georgian National Museum (Saqartvelos Erovnuli Muzeumi)
The city of Tbilisi is rich with history, but travelers looking to gain a deeper understanding of the nation’s dynamic past should pay a visit to the Georgian National Museum (Saqartvelos Erovnuli Muzeumi), where impressive galleries are lined with the art and artifacts of this diverse nation, dating back to the 8th millennium BC.

Travelers say the well-organized museum provides vital insight into Georgia’s history, including its existence under soviet rule. The treasury exhibit in the museum’s basement showcases jewels dating back more than 2,000 years and the armory section displays some impressive pieces from World War II. Though the museum is small by international standards, visitors agree it packs thousands of years of history into a compact space. Most of the material isn’t translated, so travelers who want to get the most from this experience may want to opt for a guided tour in one of four languages offered.

Practical Info

The museum is located at Shota Rustaveli Avenue in Tbilisi. It is open 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. Admission is 5 GEL for adults. Guided tours are available in Georgian, English, German and Russian for an additional fee per person.
