It's a dubious honor to be the birthplace of someone as controversial (to put it mildly) figure as it is Josef Stalin, but whatever you think of him, he is a critical figure of contemporary history and to visit its place of birth and the Museum dedicated to him, it is recommended with anyone interested in history

According to our guide, this museum does not glorify Stalin, but only tells the facts about his life. Tragically, all "facts" show him in a positive light and there was no mention of the atrcities he committed during his long reign. Apparently, he is still popular in this area. By not documenting his reign of terror for tens of millions,... More

Te Stalin museum is located in Gori city. The building itself is not where Stalin used to live at his childhood but next to the main building there is a small house belonged to Stalin's mother. The museum is full of photos and painting back to his time, reminding the communist era and the stories involved with people at that... More

This museum is dedicated to Stalin. It's his whole history and with an English tour makes it bit more inrtresting. Must of the pictorials are not in english. You see a lot of history and don't miss out on the Railway coach or the 2 rooms underneath teh staircase

It probably will not bt one of your main destinations in Georgia, but if you have an hour to spend then, I'd definitely recommend to visit this museum. From Stalin's parents house to his death mask . a lot to see here.

My bf is Russian so we went here. He liked it. It is Stalins through the years. There are lots of information about his life, but most of it is in Russian. I would recommend it. It is history!

I'm from Kiev where Kommunizm and Stalinizm were forbidden and all the streets that were named after Stalin, Lenin, Marx etc were re-named recently. That's why it is a strange feeling when you can visit Stalin museum at Stalin Square. The entrance fee was unexpectedly high -10 Georgian Lari per adult. And the place was crowded with tourists. I didn't... More

We visited the museum as part of a tour. We weren't expecting much but our guide, David, was really great. The subject is difficult and the exhibits only show a very positive light to Stalin, but David wasn't shy about talking about all the atrocities he committed.
