  • If you are in Armenia, you should Be here. Its a real piece of history of this ancient nation. The guide was a very friendly girl 
  • The Museum perfectly organized. Information is available in English, Russian and Armenian. Subject Museum frankly don't simple, sensitive I would not recommended to read all the material just seen will suffice. After the Museum we can dispel negative Duma looking at Ararat from the observation deck on the roof of the Museum.

  • The Armenian Genocide Complex built in 1967. The 44-meter stele symbolizes national rebirth of Armenians. 12 slabs are positioned in a circle are representing twelve lost provinces in present-day Turkey. In the center of circle, at a depth 1.5 meters, there is an eternal flame dedicated to the 1.5 million people killed during Armenian Genocide. Every tourist should visit Tsitsernakaberd
  • Great place for understanding the story of the armenian people. The museum is very informative and the exhibits are very interesting.
  • You truly have a overwhelming feeling of sadness that grips your heart. Genocide is the worst human atrocitie that the world will ever know.
  • 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.
  • very important museum as well as Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic bomb museum. we should transfer story to next generation.
