  • A romantic and classical place. Beautiful.
  • A must see place. I walked on the external stairs, I recommend you to avoid it under the summer sun. The internal collections were closed (3 days a week, maybe a lazy choice) but the external architecture, statues and panorama are something of the best you can see in the city. Walk till the top.
  • A must see place in Yerevan. Don't miss the works of art both on the inside as well as outside, notably "Vardanank" mural by Grigor Khanjyan and the Crystal room on the last floor.
  • Unbelievably beautiful with great art thrown in! Climb to the top for a breathtaking view of Yerevan and then go inside to use the escalators and see wonderful modern art. Don't miss Khanjyan's amazing mural - it will teach you more about Armenia than anything else!!
  • A very cool art museum situated on a giant staircase! I'm not sure why, but they are really strict on taking pictures of the art.
