Definitely not a destination that pops to mind as a must see. However, as the museum was collated in two stages, it provides a unique insight into the history of an iconic leader of pre Cold War Soviet Union. The upper level was collated during...More

This museum breaths the paradox between the 'Gori' perception (not the entire population, but of some) of Stalin and the one we have in the west. Interesting insights in Stalin's life including some curious artifacts to go with that. Don't expect a well balanced story...More

Surely you won't expect a politically and historically correct analysis of Stalin's life and legacy in this museum. You go there to see all kinds of artworks in his honor, pictures, paintings, statues, and official gifts to the dictator from all over the world. If...More

Well, you can check the historical person in the world at this museum. His life is briefly exhibited. But the only thing seemed not good. I could not understand the explanation at many of the pictures and stuffs. English was not all around. You have...More

Nicely done museum that offers a lot of history on one of the 20thc most influential people. It needs to be updated but it was still a good museum.

First off, the city of Gori is absolutely hideous looking, formerly industrial, it is now ravaged by unemployment and the damage from Russian airstrikes back in the 2008 war. I wouldn't recommend taking the train, instead take a taxi or marshrutka if you're feeling brave!...More

Very interesting place to see, the museum educated me more about the history and the items in the museum are well presented. Must see especially for those who are interested in history.

A large and very comprehensive record of Stalin's life including the home where he was born. Before this visit I didn't know that 'Stalin' was a nickname or pseudonym and that his real name was Dzhugashvili... and I was particularly touched by the tragic story...More

In my opinion, Gori would be worth only half a day. The Stalin Museum is in fact the only interesting site. Kutaisi would be a better place to stay two nights, because of the World Heritage church and a more interesting city... More
