Georgian National Museum


Georgian National Museum was established at the end of 2004 and preserving the nation's rich, authentic content of cultural heritage provides learning experiences for everyone. It supports the care and manage­ment of the nation's collections, both material and living, to expand and sustain access for current and future generations.

GNM museums, research centers and libraries inspire people throughout their lifetimes and contribute to the civic life of the Georgian nation. With built infrastructure and wide network, dedicated scientists and knowledgeable staff, it connects people to one another and to the full spectrum of human experience.

Rapid changes in the economy, demographic shifts, and new tech­nologies are creating demands for new and best museum services and GNM will continue to provide the essential educational and cultural opportunities that we need for a competitive future.

Through the museum collections, exhibits, programs and partnerships at International and national levels, GNM serves as essential and trusted source providing opportunities for lifelong learning and global understanding.

The establishment of Georgian National Museum is considered to be the beginning of structural, institutional, and legal reforms in Georgia's cultural heritage sector. The reform envisages the introduction of modern management policies and the establishment of a uniform administrative system. This initiative aims at elaborating a coherent museum mission, improving conservation standards for preserved collections, strengthening the educational programs centered on the museum's resources, and coordinating academic and museum activities. It develops and implements a nation­wide strategy to expand the pub­lic's access to the information, meaning, and content found in the museums' collections.
