One of the Where.ge team's favorite house-museums for its cozy feel and extensive collection, the Mose Toidze House-Museum in Tbilisi was established in 1986 in the former home of academic and People’s Artist Mose Toidze (1871-1953). It is currently part of the Georgian National Museum complex.
Toidze lived in the house from 1920 until his death in 1953. Museum curators say Toidze’s works represent the foundation of Georgian modern art, and the museum aims to preserve and introduce it to the public.
The museum contains 373 pieces, by Toidze and other Georgian and international artists, including publications from 1890 through the 20th century, Toidze’s personal letters, writings, portraits, and photos, and Toidze’s rich personal library. The museum periodically hosts creative events, scientific seminars, various meetings, and excursions.
