Galaktion Tabidze Memorial House-Museum - Museum of the Union of Tbilisi Museums

Galaktion Tabidze Memorial House-Museum is one of the structural units of the Union of Tbilisi Museums. The museum is dedicated to the life and work of a famous Georgian poet, public figure and academician of Georgian Academy of Science, Galaktion Tabidze (1891-1959).

Galaktion Tabidze Memorial House-Museum follows the mission and main aims of the Union of Tbilisi Museums. The mission of the Union is the new role of the museums in contemporary society, which can be described as a synergy of the traditional museum activity and an educational aspect, which focuses on knowledge sharing to each person. We believe that modern museums must expand their vision and must prioritize the visitors together with collection. Museums must have a clear social function, and thus better communicate with visitors.

The Union of Tbilisi Museums aims popularization and presentation of the 19th century culture and epoch context, preservation of cultural heritage, strengthening the functions of the museums and giving them new meanings, dissemination and strengthening of educational directions, involvement into the tourism sector, promoting low-income activities, and strengthening traditional support.

Galaktion Tabidze authored thousands of poems that established him as one of the greatest Georgian poets with an immense impact on modern Georgian literature. He lived in 4 Marjanishvili Street from 1935 to 1959. The Union of writers initiated and supported to establish the Museum. The Museum was opened after 40 years on Memorial Day of his death. The idea belongs to Vakhtang Gurgenidze, the director of the Institute of Manuscripts and Revaz Mishveladze, the writer. The great Georgian poet Galaktion Tabidze Memorial Museum is at the house where he spent the last years of his life (1935-1959). Writer’s study and living environment recovered almost unchanged. Besides of memorial things, the museum houses photographs, manuscripts and other documents which reflect Galaktion's life and creative work.

Galaktion Tabidze Memorial House-Museum of the Union of Tbilisi Museums was renovated and opened on July 22 2020. During the rehabilitation works of the museum’s memorial spaces, the House-Museum memorial features, as well as the museum needs were fully protected. The exhibition spaces in the museum are prepared in accordance with modern museography and the installations follow the life of Galaktion Tabidze and the chronological plans of the biography.
