This Museum is not very easy to find, but completely worth the effort! We travelled by Metro as there is a station about 10 minutes walk from it. The entrance door is the first clue that you have reached your destination as there are no...More

A tiny, hard to find museum, crumbling & without fanfare. Because of that, being shown by the proprietor (a previous Georgian Communist leader) what is housed inside a nearby small shed & unpretentious village house, creates some real drama. Especially when you discover who's been...More

As noted in other reviews, this is the headquarters of the Communist Party of Georgia, and pretty much solely staffed by Jules, its Vice Chairman. He is a classic in and of himself; ensconced in his 1960s-era soviet style office, with framed pictures of Lenin,...More

I recommend every person that is interested in history, politics or sociology to visit this place. I may not accept the views of the communist guide but I respect the way he believes in the idea of Communism

I have seen my share of old Soviet museums, but this is one of the most memorable. The guide is the vice chairman of the Georgian Communist Party and very full of energy and fire for his age. The most interesting part though was the...More
