Holoseum is a digital museum for the digital generation and one of the funkiest museums in Tbilisi, Georgia. At Holoseum, modern technology merges with creativity to depict art through a variety of interactive and static techniques that allow you to step into the exhibits with your whole body.

Holoseum is comprised of animated replicas of the works of famous Georgian artists, including Niko Pirosmani and Lado Gudiashvili. In lieu of frames, 125 projectors are spread across an area of 750 square meters and illuminate corridors filled with animated pictures. Visitors are invited to plunge into a world of lifelike drawings and travel through the unique world of the arts. Light, airy movements and music complement the museum’s paintings and sketches as digital, multidimensional images depict various episodes from the lives of the artists. Travel to Old Tbilisi through famous local works and experience the love story of Niko Pirosmani through his famous portrait of the actress Margarita. In Holoseum you can also walk through a tunnel surrounded by mirrors, where a special camera will capture your silhouette and make it a part of the museum.

The sole purpose of Holoseum is to popularize the arts and support local artists. Its managing team plans to transform it into an open space parallel to an exhibition hall that will include additional contributions from young artists. Workshops, seminars, book clubs, yoga classes, film screenings and other interesting events will also be organized at the museum.

After touring Holoseum, be sure to visit the Museum of Illusions which is located next door. The museum welcomes visitors into a fascinating world of illusions that will challenge your mind while providing plenty of laughs and lots of Instagram-worthy photos!

Holoseum is located at 10 Betlemi Street in Tbilisi and can be recognized from the street by the colored lights streaming from its windows. It is open Tuesday-Sunday from 11 am until 7 pm and is closed on Monday.
