Dedicated to the life of Joseph Stalin, Stalin Museum charts his life and history, from his birth in a small mud-brick house until his death in 1953. The museum sits on the site of his childhood home--in fact, it contains the small house where he was born under a specially built awning. Presenting a balanced account of his rise to power, the museum has a small room dedicated to political repression during Stalin's regime. Enter the first hall upstairs to learn about Stalin's childhood and to read some of his poetry. Learn about the ruler's relationship with Lenin, which ran from friendship and loyalty to Lenin's public criticism of Stalin's tactics. View a copy of Stalin's death mask, a reconstruction of his office in the Kremlin, and his bulletproof, personal train carriage. The museum offers guided tours in English, German, and French. A visit to Stalin Museum represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Gori travel route planning app to plot your vacation.

We liked the museum visit, it all looks very nice. Two down sides: 1. very limited English so the story of Stalin is hard to grasp. I wanted to understand the timeline and events, but was not successful. 2. The museum shows only one side of the coin; and there are two.
This place is unbelievably old-fashioned. Stalin the good guy, nothing in relation to labor camps etc. Georgia is with good reason a proud nation. Why Stalin is honored in such a subjective way I dunno. Basically everything inside is in Georgan and Russian language only. Take a look from the outside and that's it! I do not recommend to visit the museum!
