Some lovely displays with signs in English. Unfortunately a lot of rooms were closed with no reason given which was a shame and it made the visit quite short. It was a bit hard to find the entrance but worth persisting.

Small and pretty interesting collection of exhibits related to Georgian history. Every thing displaced there had a description in both Georgian and English. The entrance cost us only 3 GEL (without guide), so in my opinion it was really great for prize.

Small and interesting collection. We hired an English speaking guide for a modest fee. There is a massive wooden vat downstairs that was used for stomping grapes. It is difficult to fathom that it is made from a single piece of wood.

Better than expected as most exhibits have information in both Georgian and English. The artifacts are good to see and clearly care has been taken to make a proper presentation. For me the highlights were the small images from the first millemium BC (most of them animals). In enlarged form they can also be seen in Colchis fountain. I also liked the pieces of hammering art (gold and silver) from the 12th/13th centuries. Last but not least, the 19th century interior of a Georgian house is well done and good to observe.

I missed a more comprehensive overview of Kutaisi's history as part of Georgia during its heydays around 1100 and the subsequent periods of invasions and occupation. For an outsider it is quite complicated to understand the status of the different kingdoms and vassal states. A pity the 20th century is missing altogether.

Entrance fee: 3 Lari

If you are unable to find a fascinating object in this museum I suggest you don't bother to visit a museum. This is a brilliant small museum filled with fascinating artefacts ranging from ancient musical instruments to a vast wine press. Everything is labelled and there a number of really quirky items which you are unlikely to find anywhere else.
Well worth the visit and certainly the best museum we saw outside Tbilisi.

Small place, only 3 lari to enter. English translations for the earlier Bronze and Iron Age objects, as well as the weapons in the 2nd room, etc are sadly minimal but there is more in-depth explanation offered for the gorgeous goldmaking artifacts. Just beautiful. The main room has a charmingly dilapidated ceiling. I was also quite happy the attendant let me charge my phone in an outlet.

This museum is apparently in a temporary location while the main site is being refurbished, but it looks like it's taking a while! The displays are very old-school with limited information, but the 10th-16th century icons, some from nearby Galeti Monastery, are well-worth the admission price on their own

This is a very old school museum- glass cases with labels. You will probably be the first visitors of the day in which case they will scurry round ahead of you and make sure most of the lights are turned on! Some of the religious artefacts are interesting and everything is labelled in English as well but beyond that you are left wanting a little more. The entry fee is not more than a few pence so you can go and spend an hour out of the rain or sun. It might be worth taking a guide as the cost is not much more and most Georgians we found elsewhere were happy to give lots of information about their country. I am sure this would add to the experience here as well.

The door was secured with a chain when we got there - I'm not sure the museum gets flooded with visitors ! It's worth the trip though as the wide ranging exhibits are fascinating and displayed in an endearingly old fashioned way, with paper labels in dusty cases.
