A few old buildings, which were not bad. I liked seeing the way people lived but many of them were locked up, not a great cultural experience.

A little of all Georgia in one place. Houses that were brought from all around Georgia with their specificities and a guide inside to explain you everithing in Eng / Rus or Kartuli obvious. Near turtle lake can do both. To visit this museum will need no more than 2 hours. Inside the houses some specific items and clothes from all around the country. A nice place to visit.

The name Museum of Ethnography is misleading. The area contains typical houses from different parts of Georgia, but very little in terms of utensils and clothing. However, the Georgian countryside contains very little remains of past housing and this is the only place where you can see how people used to live not so long ago. The walk in the park is very pleasant and each house has a guide who can answer in English questions you may have. Less than an hour walk along the road will bring you to Turtle Lake, which has many cafes and restaurants at a beautiful setting, swimming and boating. Combine the two on your visit. No problem getting a cab to take you there from the city.

A wonderful museum that displays numerous and different houses and farm buildings representative of different Georgian regions and times. Our local museum guide provided us with a very detailed explanation of the cottages/houses that we visited and of the artifacts ie. pottery, farm tools, clothing. wine-making equipment; located within these buildings. The reconstructions are excellent. The site is large, so getting around to view the many replicas is easy. It was great to see local school groups visiting the Museum. Different, but worth visiting. Gives you another aspect to Georgia's history.

Open Air Museum of Ethnography is one of my favourite places in Tbilisi. The Museum has very divers architects from different regions of Georgia, it`s best place for people who are interested in traditional architecture. On the other hand it`s a huge park, where especially in Summer different Open Air Concerts, Flea markets, Festivals take place. If you catch one, don`t miss it, the place is very beautiful and peaceful to spent time with friends/family.
