Well worth a visit - but be prepared for a lot of walking - we where there on a hot June day and consumed several bottles of water! The houses are from different regions of Georgia, and in each house there was a guide that could explain the building styles, the crafts etc of the regions, but also about daily... More

I've never been to the open-air museum represented by houses from different parts of a country! Georgia is rather various that's why it's really fascinating to watch different customs of ethnic groups habitating the country. The guides provides the info not only about style-living through the centuries but global philosophical ideas of common life of a family of 20-25 members... More

This museum is a great collection of authentic houses from all part of Georgia. Every single piece is genuine, professionally rebuilt. Local staff is very helpful, knowledgable, telling funny stories in English about the original owners and village life. It was fantastic to see the beautiful, handmade kilims and well preserved furniture in the original location. We were there on... More

An authentic "open-air" museum that houses actual village style houses from the full range of Georgian regional styles. Particularly enjoyable to visit during the Art Gene festival in July, but enjoyable all year round....

In the park of the museum you can find houses that were brought here from different parts of Georgia. All the houses as we were told are original ones. Here I want to mention specially local staff, all are very friendly, attentive and knowlidgable. most of them speak English.

This place is best try to get information about Georgia. there is exhibited every part of it. on weekend artists play the roles of old people who lived in these houses. they make food, play music, dance, tell stories. This place is great for everything, it has great aura. I recommend you to visit not only once, but often.

Visit the Open Air Museum in Tbilisi for a walk back in time. Spend some time walking through the past and capture the previous life style of the folk architecture and craftworks of different regions of Georgia. It is essentially an historic village populated by buildings moved there from all main territorial subdivisions of Georgia. The museum occupies 52 hectares... More

Situated on a hill this place is showing the life style in Georgia's different regions. At the moment (July 2016) just few of the houses are open and it is not impressive enough

Some time spent in this museum will give one an idea of the architecture of different parts of Georgia. The houses are mostly 19th c.(but several are older) and have been brought from various regions of the country and are set in their own space and are not crowded. The interiors are varied and interesting. Visiting them takes one through... More

The park was fairly empty when we visited. Only two of the houses had guides in them but they were very good. I wish there had been more info (in English) on some of the houses. There is a small kiosk selling refreshments. To get there you can hike up from the park below. It's pretty steep but it can... More
