Open-air Ethnographic Museum named after G. Chitaia

2 reviews

The open-air Ethnographic Museum named after Georgy Chitadze was established in 1966 by the great figure in whose honor the museum is named.

It is a territory in an open space, where there are more than 70 houses and buildings.

Each building reflects the broad ethnic group of the Georgian people, its unusual culture and traditions, peculiarities of life and crafts.

The main feature is that all these structures were not just built on the territory of the museum with the basis of photographs and manuscripts, but were transported from different parts of Georgia, and are real houses that were once residential. They have preserved their own unique atmosphere and comfort.

    По совету наших знакомых, которые ранее были в Тбилиси, решили посетить Тбилисский этнографический музей. Музей под открытым небом, отличное место. Здесь можно в прямом смысле слова прикоснуться к истории, посетить дома 17-19 вв., увидеть, как был обустроен быт, послушать истории каждого региона. Очень интересное и новое место! Советую посетить.

    Меня привлекло то, что постройки музея когда-то были настоящими домами. Как же это самобытно и интересно. Эти строения "помнят" своих жильцов, хранят тайны их ремесла и быта. Спасибо, что рассказываете о музеях Грузии!
