  • The Armenian genocide is less known than the Shoah, so this museum is very important. The exhibit are well organized and very informative. This is very sobering, you will not be in good mood after see...  more »
  • It helps to better understand the history and all the trials through which the people of Armenia courageously and steadfastly passed.

  • Probably the best museum I've ever been to. The exhibition is really moving. If you are in Yerevan, you can't leave without visiting this place. Some people recommend the guided visit, but I prefer to do it by yourself. The guide goes too fast and you can't read and see all the info or pictures. Give yourself some time just standing next to the flame and thinking about what we are doing with the world.
  • Well maintained site. Historical. Memorial to the sufferings of Armenians. Cathartic. The museum is well arranged. Civic amenities are available. You better have your own transport for returning. Otherwise too a short downhill walk will bring you to the main road, where one can flag down a taxi. Photography is allowed inside the museum.
  • What a tribute to the people who sacrificed their life to country's sake? Indeed a nice monument. The guide here are really passionate about their job, explain the history beautifully. My eyes were wet after hearing the cruel act of Turkey's towards Armenian. This is a must visit place and pray for departed soul.
  • Well worth the trip. I did not think I would find it that interesting but I'm glad I went. Very impressive.
  • Very well made! The monument and garden are touching and the museum highly informative m ( although slightly too much info )
