The Joseph Stalin Museum in the Soviet dictator’s hometown of Gori will be converted into a museum dedicated to Stalinism in general, Georgia’s ministry of culture and monument protection said on Monday.

“With the support of the culture ministry, descendants of Stalinist repression victims and researchers of the Soviet totalitarianism, the Stalin Museum will be turned into the Museum of Stalinism to give visitors a full and unbiased insight into the most important events of the Stalinist period,” the ministry said in a statement.

Under the initiative, organizers will also set up a council of international advisors to improve and oversee various aspects of the project.

The project will be financed by Georgian organizations and international institutions.

The State Stalin Museum was founded in 1937 under the initiative of Lavrentiy Beria, who was the Soviet security chief during Stalin's rule.

The museum features the house where Stalin was born, an exhibition building and Stalin’s personal railway carriage in which he travelled to the Tehran, Yalta and Potsdam conferences. The museum’s collection also includes Stalin’s personal belongings.
