Tbilisi State Silk Museum was founded in 1887 by silk researcher Nikolay Shavrov. The history of the museum is closely connected with the opening of the Caucasian silkworm station, which was headed by Nikolai Shavrov. The building of the silk museum adjoins the silkworm station, which allows visitors to observe the process of silk production.

The museum building and station are a landmark of Tbilisi as a great example of the architecture of the XIX century.

The museum exhibits not only the species of silkworms and butterflies but also presents the entire process of silk production, as well as mulberry varieties, dyes, and silk products.

The most interesting part of the museum is living silkworms, which can be fed with mulberry leaves. The worm needs to be fed only with fresh leaves from April to June. In the museum, you can also buy a silk cocoon.
