Pirosmani House Museum
29 Niko Pirosmani St, Tbilisi
10:00 AM - 6:00 PM, Closed on Mondays
The Pirosmani, or Pirosmanishvili, house museum celebrates one of the most -- if not the most --celebrated artists in Georgia's history. Niko Pirosmani spent his last years in this home, which was later turned into the museum it is today in 2008.
One element that sets this museum aside from others is its size: it is known to be one of the smallest in the world. It is maybe for this reason that it goes undiscovered by tourists visiting Tbilisi.
The house museum is supplemented with exhibition halls that showcase several of his original works, as well as other celebrated paintings from other well-known Georgian artists including Pablo Picasso's famous lithograph, the "Pirosmanishvili Portrait." The museum also has a number of old handmade kilns and carpets, one of which was weaved by Pirosmani's mother.
This small museum, with its unique and colorful collections of Pirosmani's work and life, is worth a visit.
