  • Nice museum, but small! I like how nicely everything is presented. The building itself is beautiful and the statues great Armenians outside are masterpieces. Totally recommend sightseeing in Dilijan. It’s just 10 minutes walking distance away from the main bus station at the main square. I cannot accurately remember the cost of the admission fee, but it was something around $1 or $1.5.
  • Nice small collection of mainly Armenian/Soviet artists. The archeological part was finally open but not very interesting. The Restroom needs some attention!!
  • Mostly Russian artists are exhibited. It would be better to have more local artists.
  • Great collection of artist. Must see
