The Georgian National Museum was established at the end of 2004 to preserve the rich, authentic cultural heritage of the country and provide an opportunity for everyone to gain valuable experience. It supports the care and management of national collections, both tangible and living, to expand and maintain access for present and future generations.

With built-in infrastructure and a wide network, dedicated scientists and knowledgeable staff, it connects people to each other and to the full spectrum of the human experience.
