Seemingly a rather small museum, I learned that it houses more than 4,000 items ; all are tastefully displayed, well lit and labeled. I think we started in a numismatic hall, then saw beautiful old books and manuscripts. I was particularly impressed with their collection of stunning icons and metalwork crosses. Finally there are displays of ethnographic value, showing lifestyle, daily tools and cloting of Svaneti people.
Good place to visit after exploring Ushguli, so you can put it all in perspective.

We decided to visit this museum as we had become very curious about Svan culture after a trip to Ushguli. I know most museums are based on artefacts (and it has a fair number of those) but I had hoped to leave with a deeper understanding of how people lived and survived, their rituals, social history, food, day-to-day life and customs etc. (The giant couldron for boiling sacrificial animals was the closest to this there was but that is about it). Maybe it was because we did not have a guided tour but I considered it 20 GEL (each) not particularly well spent.

The local guide that took us round was keen to point out every article in the museum. She was very knowledgeable and was able to answer questions from our group too. There's quite a range of stuff! Well worth a visit if you have the time.

Surprisingly well done museum with an interesting collection of Svaneti artifacts from the past 2-3 thousand years. We had a superb English-speaking guide that made a big difference in appreciating the collection - highly recommend getting a guide. We especially enjoyed the icons and learning about the particulars of Svan iconography.

Amazingly well-stored collection of items dating back to as early as the 7th century. Well-organized and beautiful setting.
