Very small museum consisting of pictures and some war memorabilia. The curator/guide is very friendly and speaks some English, will fill you in on details about conflicts in which Georgia took part focusing on the most recent one with the Russians in 2008. You can use the translation function on your phone to get all the info, nothing is in English, overall the place manages to tell an interesting story. Free entrance as well.
The museum appears to be a private one, and the opening times may not be accurately reflected. We went on a Tues morning at 10:15am and it was apparently closed. But the guide, Timur, heard that it was our last day in Kutaisi, and decided to give us a personal tour instead. The museum covers Georgia during WW2, moving on to Abkhazia in 1992, Afghanistan and Georgia's joint efforts (relating to its bid to join NATO), and finally South Ossetia in 2008. All description panels are in Georgian and Russian, so we used Google Translate. Timur took us through each time period, pausing to tell us key points of each involvement. He had a very jovial, helpful demeanor and even said we should take a selfie. We were asked to jot down our thoughts in the guest book at the end, and the fee of 5 GEL was paid per person. Overall I'd say it's a good stop while you're in Kutaisi and would recommend 30-45mins for it - longer, if you either read Georgian or Russian, or if you are a big war history nerd.
