So there is a very famous Stalin Museum in Gori, Georgia and it is definitely going strong. But there is another far less well known Stalin Museum in Batumi, Georgia that I had heard mentioned somewhere.
Today I decided to go have a look for it since I hadn't found it in my wanderings. When I found it, it was looking a bit derelict:
The photo on the left is from the Wikipedia stub article and was taken in 2008. The photo on the right was taken by me today in 2012.
There were plaques by the gates in Russian and Georgian stating that Stalin lived here, but there was a big padlock on the gate and no sign of any kind indicating that it is now or ever was a museum.
So has this museum closed for good or is it just on some kind of hiatus awaiting the 2012 summer tourist season and in need of a tidy up?
