Interesting museum with a mixed bag of collections. The prehistoric display on evolution was excellent and uniquely set up. Also of great interest was the top floor exhibit on the Soviet occupation of Georgia.

We saw the Georgian Archeological Treasury recommended online, so decided to stop there while visiting Tbilisi. The museum is small, so it will not take you long to visit. Reasonable entrance fee = $5. The highlight is definitely the treasury, filled with amazing, well-preserved artifacts. Many are made of gold, lots of jewelry, all pristine. A real treat and a nice way to spend a couple of hours.

Afterwards, enjoy khinkali at the nearby Zodiaqo (see separate entry).

My favorite floor was the first floor with the treasury. The absolutely gorgeous gold jewelry down there really blew my mind. And the fourth floor with the communist past is fascinating. I love finding things that I don’t know about and will now have to read about!

This museum is a bit of a general museum, where you findmost of the typical things. I was missing the old books though. Not sure where they are.

This is a must see place. This is a unique and interesting museum and one of the best museums I have ever visited. I like the most the archaeological exhibits where you can learn a lot about the biological classifications of the great apes and learn about the human evolution with great evidences belonging to different eras.
Another interesting section exhibits a large number of coins pertaining to very old ages. I was surprised to see coins used in the 6th century BC . The coins exhibit tells interesting stories of the Georgian history . It shows how open Georgia was with other nations and cultures.
There are a lot more to see and read. I suggest you take pictures of the labels of the exhibits you like to read later or keep as references , the information is very valuable (take permission please).
Remember the exhibition is closed on Mondays.

Very well organized museum and the best one in Georgia, located at the start of Rustaveli Avenue, a few minute walking distance from liberty square. It is also next to the museum of modern art. The museum was 4 floors which displayed Georgian history, chinese art, animals, wars, ornaments, evolution etc.
It seemed only certain area was accesible for tourists. We can navigate the museum via lift or via stairs.
Few rooms had some lighting issues (spot light not working), photos when click becomes dull due to strong light from window. Rest assured, it was a great adventure visiting this museum and knowing the Georgian history. Ticket is arount 15 GEL

A hidden treasure at the beginning of Rustaveli Avenue, a walking distance from freedom/liberty square, a very convenient location.
The Georgian National Museum is the product of the unification of several museums and research centers that hosts various exhibitions, both temporary and permanent, from archaeological to modern art collections and cultural exhibits.
The Museum is 4 floors, each floor is divided into two sections, each section specializes in a specific subject/theme with interesting artifacts, to name a few: archaeological, Georgian heritage, soviet occupation, east Asia…etc.
Note: The elevator is not working, so be prepared to climb few stairs.

Nice displays, but relatively small considering the age of the Georgian culture. It seemed like it went from 2000 BC to some 18th century clothes and weapons, immediately to the Soviet occupation. I am sure it’s a work in progress and for the $3 dollar admission you can’t go wrong.
