Open Air Museum of Ethnography

  Kus Tba St. 1      (+995) 32 272 90 45     more than a year ago
A huge outdoor museum sprawling over 50 hectares on the hill above Vake Park. It consists of over 70 buildings and more than 8000 implements and artefacts from traditional Georgian life. The museum is divided into ten zones, each depicting a different aspect of Georgian ethnology. The buildings have been brought from all over Georgia and painstakingly re-errected. There is a example of a guard tower form the Northern Svanetia and a Kachetian winery as well as houses and other buildings from Abkhazia, Ajara and other regions. Each building has its own relevant display of costumes, ceramics, tools and items from daily life. At the Kartli house, arrive before 16:00 and when you step inside, look up.... The museum also has great views over the city. To get here take bus #59 from Rustaveli metro station in the Vake direction and get off at the last stop. From there, either walk for about 30 min or take a taxi for 3-4 Lari.
