It probably will not bt one of your main destinations in Georgia, but if you have an hour to spend then, I'd definitely recommend to visit this museum. From Stalin's parents house to his death mask . a lot to see here.

My bf is Russian so we went here. He liked it. It is Stalins through the years. There are lots of information about his life, but most of it is in Russian. I would recommend it. It is history!

I'm from Kiev where Kommunizm and Stalinizm were forbidden and all the streets that were named after Stalin, Lenin, Marx etc were re-named recently. That's why it is a strange feeling when you can visit Stalin museum at Stalin Square. The entrance fee was unexpectedly high -10 Georgian Lari per adult. And the place was crowded with tourists. I didn't... More

Unfortunately it was not in the plan of our itinerary, but though, I requested our guide George to give us a few minutes to have a look and take few pictures. He promised if time permit. Later on, we passed by the Stalin by he apologized not to stop otherwise plan will be disturbed. I think Travel Agency should have... More

We visited the museum as part of a tour. We weren't expecting much but our guide, David, was really great. The subject is difficult and the exhibits only show a very positive light to Stalin, but David wasn't shy about talking about all the atrocities he committed.

Our posts focus is not Stalin’s museums in Gori, but less famous museums dedicated to him. 35km east from Tbilisi in village Akhalsopeli,  its resident Temur Kunelauri has a private museum of Stalin. In his own home, as well as in his green and beautiful garden, Kunelauri has placed a lot of portraits, at least 12 busts and monuments of Stalin. He... More

We stopped at the Stalin Museum en route back to Tbilisi from Borjomi and were glad we'd bothered, although equally probably glad we hadn't made a special trip. The museum building is spectacular and the contents interesting. We got the guide (included on the ticket) and were glad we had as she was able to give us background we'd otherwise... More

They have a good collection of the pictures and few items being used by Stalin. The highlight however, was the house where Stalin was born and the personal carriage he used to use for his traveling. However i had the feeling of them glorifying the murder. Never once the museum appointed guide would mention how many people he got killed... More

The feeling you get walking out of this museum is that of a child that chipped his tooth while eating candy. The tour guide was wonderful and explained so well every detail of Stalin's life and the pieces displayed in the Museum. What felt off though, is that the museum praises the young Stalin as a local "Hero" to whom... More

This stop was part of a day tour out of Tbilisi that included the Uplistsikhe Cave Town. Located in the central square of Gori, the Stalin Museum seemed quite popular during our visit. We hired a tour guide who did a wonderful job of explaining the museum pieces and selected and therefore guarded historical comments. Additionally, we visited his house... More
