Here are the remains of tagiloni treasure, the holy emboist of the mother god, the symbol of Queen Bordokhan and Queen Tamar, manuscripts, paintings, dadiani dynasty items and objects and busts of Napoleon Bonaparte. (Prince Achille Murat, son-in-law of David Dadiani, is the granddaughter of Napoleon's sister) The museum is made up of three palaces, including the Blachernae church and the Zugdidi Botanical Garden. The palace became a museum in 1921 at the initiative of Georgian ethnographer and geologist Akaki Chanturia.

From my point of view, nothing has been changed or renovated here in the post-socialist era. There are pictures hanging on the wall, there are some pieces of furniture, a few weapons and crockery. Nothing is explained, no structure can be recognized. However, the museum staff takes great care to ensure that they behave in accordance with the rules. In one room, the ceiling is broken. It took us maybe 15-20 minutes for the tour, admission 5 Lari.
Wonderful yard, fabulous Palace. Great history of Dadiani family and their connection with Napoleon Bonaparte is very interesting
This is a nice museum, but unfortunately the building is going to become unaccessable as there is a lack of money to maintain. Some Unesco fund probably will help to maintain the Palace. The garden is wonderful and comparable to western castles...
