Founded in 2007, the Batumi Technological Museum presents exhibits reflecting the technological progress achieved in late 19th and the early 20th century Batumi with the help of prominent industrialists such as A. Rothschild, A. Mantashev and Nobel Brothers. The period saw significant development in oil business, cultivation of tea and tobacco, as well as in printing industry.
The exhibition features photographs tracing the history of oil industry and the process of growing new agricultural crops, such as tea and tobacco. The Museum also keeps archival documents and exhibits. A separate exhibition is devoted to the commercialization of Georgian wine. Presented are also photographs by a well-known photographer Sergei Prokudin-Gorsky, which present Georgian way of life and culture in the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries.
The museum is located in the building which, a century ago, housed the Batumi Office of the Nobel Brothers Petroleum Production Company.
