  • More than 100 years ago, the Ottoman Turk planed to decimate all Armenian within Turkey. Millions of Armenian were deported by force to Syrian desert and the death toll was estimated to be around 1.5 million. It was known as Armenian genocide but until now Turkish government still denied such happenings. 2015 is the 100th anniversary of Armenian Genocide and it is a good time to know about this almost forgotten history in Armenian Genocide Memorial. Free entrance and highly recommended. If you like history, the museum can spent you a whole afternoon.
  • prepare yourself emotionally. it worth it
  • Very interesting and moving. It's an indescribable experience. I knew so little about the Armenian Genocide. The visit takes about 3 hours (i think) at least to fully appreciate the history.
  • Any open minded person visiting Armenia should visit Genocide Museum and face the history
  • Very good
