The Stalin Museum in Gori

The Stalin Museum in Gori

Joseph Stalin is a man that needs no introduction. The infamous leader of the Soviet Union and a key figure in the Second World War, Stalin had humble roots, being born in the Georgian city of Gori. The first museum dedicated to Stalin was actually opened during his lifetime, and it still operates to this day.

The third hall is reserved for photographs of historic events, the fourth for one of Stalin’s bronze death mask, the fifth for gifts given to Stalin during his life, and the sixth as a copy of the office Stalin worked in from 1918 to 1922.
