The History of the Ksani Gorge Historical-Architectural Museum-Reserver

The former palace of the Ksani family is an architectural ensemble from the beginning of the 17th century, although it was remade in the Imperial style during the 19th century. During the Soviet period, a school and sports centre were also here.

The Artifacts Preserved at the Ksani Gorge Historical-Architectural Museum-Reserve

Today, the palace is a museum in which a great many artefacts from pre and early Antiquity are kept, including weapons and jewellery. There is also a coin collection, glazed ceramics from the 18th and 19th centuries, and various ethnographic materials from the 18th and 19th centuries.

In 2006, the Museum-Reserve was accorded the status of an immovable monument of national cultural importance.

After the 2008 Russian-Georgian war, this territory is occupied by Russia and it is temporarily impossible to visit.
