Georgian National Museum Ioseb Grishashvili Tbilisi History Museum invites you at the exhibition "Tbilisi Self-Government in 1875-1917".

The exhibition presents rich and unique museum collections, which were handed to the authorities of the Russian Empires' first "Tbilisi Municipal Museum" (now I. Grishashvili Tbilisi History Museum). Exactly these collections became the basis for the establishment of the museum in 1910.

Exhibition allows us to clearly perceive decisions made by the government for solving the problems of utilities (water canal, paving of the streets and the squares, illumination, transport), sanitary clearing of the city, health protection, the decision of problems of education and culture. These activities helped to turn Tbilisi into European city.
