The Tbilisi Archeological Museum is an excellent site for history lovers and those who are passionate about seeing archeological sites and learning about the ages past. The museum is located in the Old City and is very easily accessible, especially if you are walking through the Old City. There is an entrance fee payable once you enter the site.

The archeological site displays various items and objects unearther from Georgia in the iron age, stone age and bronze age etc. There is a guide on the site who will be able to briefly explain the things found and whch are categrozied into the different prehistoric ages. I found this extremely interesting and spent a lot of time looking at the displays and exhibits. Outside in the garden, there are more items displayed and the guide does offer an explanation.

I would like to share this:
While I was looking around, the guide asked me which I was from. When I said 'South Africa' he asked if I knew of a Niko Boer. I had not heard of Niko Boer and then he explained that Niko Bagrationi was a Georgian nobleman who fought in the Anglo-Boer War in South Africa sometime between 1899-1902. Niko wrote about his experiences in his memoirs. I was shocked and what a surprise this was! I am so glad I visited this museum and learned about a Georgian involved in South African history! How awesome is this! You just never know what you can learn by visiting museums and historical sites.

There is a souvenir shop available for those who would like to buy items from Georgia.

Overall a wonderful, learning experience! I highly recommend this to those touring or traveling through Tbilisi.

This is a new museum in Tbilisi, with all the artifacts having been found onsite. It's only 1 lari entrance fee, and the manager is very passionate about explaining all the objects. They're still doing excavation work, and are currently in the process of uncovering a bath house that's more than 1000 years old! Ask the manager to show it to you. Highly recommended for a quick visit!

Nothing much to see. An open museum in the backyard of the monastery and a small section of artefacts found in the area with just 1 Lari to enter. Excavations are still underway in the area

The museum and site are small. There are captions in English on the exhibits in the small museum but nothing in the rooms under the monastery. The manager gave the barest explanation when asked and was anxious for me to leave. One of the very few inhospitable Georgians in the whole 4 weeks that I have spent in the country.

The garden was well kept.

Come if you have nothing better to do.
