In the same building as the National History museum, and if you are in a hurry, I suggest you do that museum first. However, if you have time over, this museum is well worth a visit. It is a very large museum. On the top...More

In years of visiting art museums, this is the first time I have encountered old masterpieces subject to 35C, windows open and sunlight actually reaching works. Fans, such as they are, are feeble and intended to make life a little better for the stern-faced women...More

If you savvy modern art from the second half of the 20th century you have to go. Art played a very important role throughout the soviet rule for local Armenians. Nice place to visit

For those who have been to art museums with classical and Renaissance paintings, the upper floors aren't necessarily novel. In my opinion, it's the Armenian artists that should be the central purpose of any visit. Between Saryan, Aivazovsky,, Avetisyan, Gorky, my personal favorite Sureniants, and...More
