We strongly recommended to hire a guide on this exposition. Our was fluent english speaker And clearly knew a lot of interesting facts about Georgia history. We really enjoyed this and it was (next to Uplitschike) highlight of our Day trip to Gori.

This museum is so much more interesting and professional than the better known Stalin museum (and it's even much cheaper!). They have English speaking guides who will happily explain everything about Georgian history and culture. A must-do in Gori!

I'm not a museum guy at all, but Nia our guide made this a fun and interesting tour. It's very affordable (5 GEL for the tour) and Nia's knowledge and passion made it really enjoyable. Thanks a lot!

Also there are different household items of locals of XVI-XX centures. English-speaking and russian-speaking...More

The Sergi Makalatia is just across the street of the Stalin museum. It can be visited quickly but has a perfect display of amazing artefacts. The guide was great for us as well as our child. Diademes from the Bronze age Winejugs shaped like a...More

When you come to Gori I definitely recommend you to visit this museum. I was really fascinated by the exhibition that ranges from findings from BC to the 20th century, all from the region around Gori. You can get a very sightful guided tour in...More

There is something about Eurasian local history museum museums, they always have a few bits of mastondon. Must have been a very wide ranging beast. But anyway, the museum... yes, a very well lit, nicely set up display of items explaining life in the region...More

My Gori highlight was not the Stalin Museum but rather this nicely-sized museum with an expert guide who speaks English very well. The staff in general is more welcoming than any other group I've met in Georgia. The young woman who was my guide (for...More

This small museum knocks the socks off the glorification of Stalin down the street. The English-speaking guide was not only fluent in English, but clearly knew her stuff and was passionate about the artifacts. This glimpse of Georgian history from the 4th century BC through...More
