A hidden treasure at the beginning of Rustaveli Avenue, a walking distance from freedom/liberty square, a very convenient location. The Georgian National Museum is the product of the unification of several museums and research centers that hosts various exhibitions, both temporary and permanent, from archaeological to modern art collections and cultural exhibits
The museum was 4 floors which displayed Georgian history, chinese art, animals, wars, ornaments, evolution etc. It seemed only certain area was accesible for tourists. We can navigate the museum via lift or via stairs. Few rooms had some lighting issues
The Rézo Gabriadze puppet theatre is one of the city’s emblems, not to be missed during your visit to Tbilisi. Its architecture is really amazing, it looks like the tower is almost collapsing.
She has an almost “Gaudian” side and would certainly not have done a task in Barcelona. If you can, try to find yourself there on a “stack” hour, you will be entitled as a bonus to a small puppet animation.
