Stalin Museum, Gori

#2 of 7 in Things to do in Gori
Dedicated to the life of Joseph Stalin, Stalin Museum charts his life and history, from his birth in a small mud-brick house until his death in 1953. The museum sits on the site of his childhood home--in fact, it contains the small house where he was born under a specially built awning. Presenting a balanced account of his rise to power, the museum has a small room dedicated to political repression during Stalin's regime. Enter the first hall upstairs to learn about Stalin's childhood and to read some of his poetry. Learn about the ruler's relationship with Lenin, which ran from friendship and loyalty to Lenin's public criticism of Stalin's tactics. View a copy of Stalin's death mask, a reconstruction of his office in the Kremlin, and his bulletproof, personal train carriage. The museum offers guided tours in English, German, and French. A visit to Stalin Museum represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Gori travel route planning app to plot your vacation.

  • Before I went this museum I think only museum maybe nothing interesting but when I go inside it amaze me , one man that can do many things to change a world and many life, how he can do ? you can't . You cannot go in to see it by yourself must wait for round and there will be museum's guide who will take you walk around while telling stories in English
  • Like other English speakers I wish they had more translations and information available in English but it's still worth a trip. It was much more interesting when my friend added in biographical information from Wikipedia including how many times Stalin was sent to Siberian prisons. Valid to say he was a monster but he had quite a life.
