The Museum of Georgia or The Simon Janashia Museum is one of the major historical museums in the country. It was opened on Rustaveli Avenue in 1852, and in 1947 the museum was named after the historian Simon Janashia.


The permanent exhibition includes archaeological finds and ethnographic documents of Georgia and the Caucasus, reflecting the history of Georgian culture from antiquity to the beginning of the XX century: jewelry created in the V century BC., coins, icons, Urartu inscriptions, and much more. Also here visitors can see the painting by Wassily Kandinsky, made in 1900s, which is believed to be one of the first abstract works of art all around the world.


Guided tours in several languages, including Russian, are available.


Regular exhibitions and public lectures take place in the museum.
