  • It was an incredible historical journey the visit to this museum. I am very glad that Armenian people did not forget this atrocity, since we all need to learn from hisotry.  more »

  • By far the most impressing and dignified museum and memorial place I have seen. A must visit to understand this heavy period of time. Thorough and informative reprocessing of the darkest chapter in the Armenian culture. Very unapologetic but still doesn't come off as 1-sided. We were there for 2 hours. Memorial part and the museum itself are displayed in pressing but adequate gravity. We came out humble and contemplative even though we engaged this topic frequently before. It really helps with putting things in perspective and understanding this great Armenian culture and helps to learn about the huge impact this was on the ethnicity of Minor Asia
  • Very interesting to learn about the history. Is free entrance and last entrance at 15:30. It closes at 16:00.
