The local guide that took us round was keen to point out every article in the museum. She was very knowledgeable and was able to answer questions from our group too. There's quite a range of stuff! Well worth a visit if you have the time.

Surprisingly well done museum with an interesting collection of Svaneti artifacts from the past 2-3 thousand years. We had a superb English-speaking guide that made a big difference in appreciating the collection - highly recommend getting a guide. We especially enjoyed the icons and learning about the particulars of Svan iconography.

This is one of the best ethnographic museums I've ever visited. Svaneti has a long cultural history and this museum has artifacts and insight that spans it all. It's also beautifully filled.
