Art Museum of Georgia
Category: Tourist Attraction
The Art Museum of Georgia, also known as the Shalva Amiranashvili Museum of Fine Arts, is one of the most renowned museums in Georgia, with a collection of approximately 140,000 items of Georgian, Asian, Russian, and Western European paintings and artifacts. The new Art Museum in Tbilisi is comprised of three concrete buildings that combine public cultural exhibit areas with ongoing commercial events. The forerunner of the present-day museum, the National Art Gallery first opened in 1920.
Construction of the new facility included integrated seismic protection measures and waterproofing of the concrete structures. Over 4,000 m3 (5,250 cubic yards) of concrete used in the below-ground structures were treated with PENETRON ADMIX to ensure a waterproof and durable foundation that will help preserve the museum’s priceless collection for decades.
