Georgian National Museum

The Georgian National Museum is the largest museum complex in Georgia, located in the capital city of Tbilisi. The Museum was established in 2004 and unified several leading museums in the country. The Museum’s mission is to modernize the institution’s management and coordinate research and educational activities.

The Museum was established through structural, institutional, and legal reforms. Since its formation on December 30, 2004, the Museum has been directed by Professor David Lordkipanidze.

The collections of the museum cover the country’s history, starting from animal re-parents dating back to 40 million years. One of the most impressive artefacts at the museum is the prehistoric human re-parents found in Dmanisi, which date back to 1.8 million years and are the oldest sign of human existence outside of Africa.
