Chances are this will be your only chance to ever see a real Georgian home from times past, given the wars and invasions the countryside has seen. Don't miss this. Truly interesting.

We had a wonderful afternoon wandering around this museum. Rather than being a re-enactment, passionate Georgians gently share their history in a setting that is both authentic and engaging. It's a lovely place to walk around, enter some of the houses and learn about the history, really interesting place and really well done. We spent a wonderful afternoon there and plan on going back again soon.

We had a good experience at this place, it's the first time we visit something like this, it feels more like a park than a museum, some parts are really nice and other parts can be better, most of the houses are not very impressive to be honest, but again as a park it's a really nice place to walk, and relax away from the chaos of Tbilisi. Towards the top it's located the "Giorgitsminda" house which was definitely the best and most interesting, inside there are old items of ancient georgians. If you want to visit a quiet park that feels like a museum, then I'd recommend this to you.

Not to be recommended really. There's not loads to see unless you're interested in old Georgian wooden houses. According to the guide we spoke to much of the place is in rack and ruin (evident) because of lack of investment but they are getting support from Norway who specialise (somehow) in wooden houses and the restoration. We found it boring

I only recommend this museum to be visited during the festival in July which is organized annually. Nice hand made arts, concerts, dance shows and along you get to see traditional houses of Georgia.
