The Open Air Museum was founded on April 27, 1966 by the famous Georgian ethnographer Giorgi Chitaia. It is located in Tbilisi’s Vake district, to the west of “Turtle Lake”. It houses more than eight thousand artifacts brought from all over Georgia and encompasses 14 ethnographic zones: Kartli, Samegrelo, Adjara, Abkhazia, Svaneti, Khevsureti, Kakheti, Meskheti, Javakheti, Guria, Imereti, Racha, Lechkhumi and Ossetia. Each exhibit presents a certain historic-ethnographic area of Georgia. The museum also presents ethnographic materials – different kinds of tools, textiles, and ceramics. The 5th-6th century basilica of Sioni is also included in the museum.
