Lonely Planet review for Dadiani Museum
The palace of the Dadiani family (old lords of Samegrelo), a castle-like building from the 17th to 19th centuries in a park 500m beyond the north end of Zviad Gamsakhurdia, is now the Dadiani Museum. The most unusual exhibit is one of Napoleon Bonaparte’s three bronze death masks, acquired via a 19th-century marriage between a Dadiani and a descendant of Napoleon’s sister. The wooded botanical gardens beside the park are worth a stroll.
