  • Armenians very reverently refer to its history. Even the impersonal that existed thousands of years ago, in the iron age. Actually, this museum is devoted to him. Get better from Echmiadzin is along the main road towards Hoktemberyan. Navigate more accurately not at Metsamor town, and the village of Taronik, about 6 kilometres away. The Museum, by the way, is charged, which is not surprising, because the exhibits are interesting and even unique. For example, the remains of ancient observatories, and even the so-called "astrological stone" has all overgrown with MOSS. However, there are enough stones as had a sacral meaning (because of phallic shape) and the ruins of a very venerable age fortress. But this is all outside. Inside, too, have something to look at. And if the primitive implements and everyday objects of people of the stone age, whose settlement apparently existed at this location, can cause only momentary curiosity, then gold could be evaluated and aesthetic criteria.

  • While the museum has some interesting displays, Metsamor is very much an archaeological site. The museum offers private tours to visitors which are quite informative.
  • Little remains, excavated uninteresting nice Museum
