It's in the middle of Rustaveli St. next to Kashveti Church. It's a new modern building that covers the old and the modern history of Georgia. In 3 main parts one covers the old treasures of Georgia and the second has pieces of Art and treasures from other countries ( Persian mostly) but the riches and most touchy ( for me) was that of the 70 years of Soviet Occupation. I spent more than 2 hours there watching the videos and the horrible instruments of torture and the very sad photos of the victims and martyrs

Archaeological artefacts and the (terrible) history of the Soviet occupation are definitely worth seeing.

If in Tbilisi don't miss the Treasury collection in the National Museum - a stunning collection of gold working and other jewellery, some dating back five thousand years. The wealth of the material and the sophistication of the work seems to be behind the legend of the Golden Fleece that was associated with ancient Georgia. Finds from ancient tombs include the complete gold regalia of a noblewoman from four thousand years ago. The eclectic museum also has skulls found in Georgia of human ancestors dating back over 1.7 million years - some of the oldest human remains found outside Africa, while the small Oriental collection has some delightful paintings from late 18th / early 19th century Iran. The permanent exhibit on the Soviet occupation is a moving reminder of the suffering the Georgians like so many peoples endured in the 20th century but is a little selective. The Georgians weren't the only victims of the Soviet regime in the 1930s and you wouldn't necessarily guess from the exhibition that the. Sin architect of the atrocities, Stalin, was a local.

Two are the most important facts about georgian history showed in this museum. First, the gold treasures, second the soviet occupation. Since, i love ancient jewellery fashion i found very interesting the treasure room, but the most spectacular is the Soviet Occupation Room. It shows the 70 years of terror, atheism and the millions of georgian who died under this regime.
