„This space makes me cry every time I enter it.”
This space makes me cry every time I enter it. I feel like I start surfing through time and space, which is a geography-free and prejudice-free timeless ocean of one of the oldest cultural cradles of the planet. The bulk of the museum focuses on artifacts of Georgian civilization from tens of thousands of years BC to the present. It also has a section that explores ancient hominids—humans an their ancestors—which is a topic very relevant to Georgia as some of the oldest human remains outside Africa have been found in the Dmanisi, Kartli region. With all of its immensity and cultural importance, there’s something sweet, pure and childishly innocent about it, that always gives me hope for the future of this country, which has seen glory and misery, and is still struggling.
