    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.

    Highly recommend to visit this nice place with great people. Staff is very kind: always ready to help, make a photo etc. We like places like this, with different visual effects. So if you like too - just check this place out.

    Documenting how Georgians lived in the past centuries, especially the nineteenth century, I enjoyed learning how food was made and stored, and I was also amazed at the architecture of the old houses and their progress.

    A bit out of the way from the main attractions in town, but this is a must-see in Tbilisi for anyone with an interest in Soviet history. The staff only speak Georgian and Russian but with a few words in English and a lot of hand gestures, still provided a really interesting tour.

    I was personally asked for 10 GEL cash at the end of the tour however based on other reviews, this amount varies - just bring a few extra five lari notes as it's well worth a visit.

    This museum hosts a unique collection of cars and some motorcycles made in the USSR from the small Zaporozhets to the huge Zil and Chaikas. Great place for car lovers or for culture diggers. Everything is in perfect condition and beautifully displayed.

    A must-see in Tbilisi. There is a huge and various collection of Georgian Art. It gives a glimpse into their culture and society. You can easily spend 2 hours wandering and being amazed at their perspective of how they see the world around them.

    If you like photography then it well worth looking at this gallery, which has some historical photojournalism pieces by well know local artists, some young contemporary pieces and some conceptual work; all of which is for sale. The Gallery Managers are both knowledgable and passionate about the work in the collection. Their English is superb and add something to a visit here. Great art house coffee too!

    I had never heard of Zurab Tsereteli before but you certainly get to see a lot of his work and life here as over half of the museum is dedicated to him and his work. Personally I enjoyed much of his work but would have enjoyed seeing more works from other Georgian modern artists.
    The rest of the museum was a temporary exhibition of works by Halla bint Khaled - a Saudi Arabian female artist. Her paintings in the series "Haj" were simply beautiful and it was interesting to get an impression of how difficult things are for women in Saudi Arabia.
    Overall would say this museum is worth a visit but don't expect a lot of variety in it!

    What a wonderful little place. We paid the extra 5 lari to get a tour and the woman was a real delight. It was great fun to see the various instruments and watch the short video so that you could hear them as well. The collection of mechanical music machines was really good as well. Definitely worth stopping by.

    Wow-so glad we took the time to visit the Silk Museum. Another amazing way to immerse in the Georgian culture and Chuka was a gracious host. Really a must see in Tbilisi!

    The museum is located in a renovated historic Caravanserai (a roadside inn which
    supported the flow of commerce, where travelers could rest and recover from the day's journey). This building is very beautiful, you can picture the way it was centuries ago.
    Customer service is poor and the staff show little interest in assisting you. They had no change, I had to go and locate change for a 20 lari note. I waited approximately 20 minutes to purchase a ticket. I ask where to start. She pointed to basement. BEWARE. Basement is private businesses.
    The staff on the museum floor appear to be former prison guards. Always eyeballing you. They have a lot of miniature structures on display of the types of living structures, government buildings etc. Some of the items such as the cannons, guns, swords and knives lack the information I like to see, year, maker or company, country of origin. The last exhabits is lacking information, appears to be the daily work of herders in the mountains. For the cost it's a decent museum.

    Interesting. The building is modern Glas and chrome. Glass floors in secured entrance foyer.
    The museum houses only Georgian Artist for the last 80 years. You will see similarities in much of the art from the younger artist.
    The museum staff definitely needs to work on the flow of the exhibits. You will see the Artist Information signage (Georgian & International language) and start enjoying the art and a new Artist Information sign appears! You went the wrong way. Some sort of directional signage on floor would help.
    It's 15 GEL lari, I highly recommend they consider issuing a two day pass. The work is plentiful and overwhelming. I would have made multiple trips like at other museums that have multi entry tickets.
