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.

  • This is a hard one considering he was evil incarnate. They have his birthplace home as well as a rail car he used to terrorize the world.

  • Great for history lovers, especially WW2. Little outdated but still a great experience. We had young kids with us and I don’t recommend taking them for anyone else.

  • Good history. Felt a little bit weird about how much his legacy felt celebrated, maybe not the goal but that's what it felt like. Not enough about the destruction and evil this man caused.
  • Clean well maintained museum with a rich history. 5 gel entry per person and guide service are extra. Houses a beautiful museum. Train that Stalin used , the house where he stayed which is beautifully preserved and a garden as well. Must visit for a bit of history.
