  • This museum is wow! Its full of very old and rich history objects dating to the earliest history of man. It is very big and you need time to visit everything. Its a very nice building and you can not get lost. Everything is very well placed. Personel speaks good english and will help you if you need it. Must visit place!!!
  • Very unique collection and will be extremely lovable by those who are into museum. The sad part of the visit is you don't get to click any photos inside nor you can use a stroller, the staff are very friendly and guide you easily throughout the museum which is a lot of walking. If you are going there with kids, be wary of carrying them otherwise skip it as it will tire you to the core, but definitely a place to visit and see some historical artifacts.
  • I really enjoyed. the atmosphere was great. if you like historical places i recommend to see this place.
  • The most amazing museum I have ever been to in my life. The National History Museum of Armenia showcases the history and heritage of my people. The artifacts on display are absolutely stunning remnants of our past. As someone who loves history I went through the museum in 3 hours because of how many interesting things there where to read and observe. The admission fee is approximately 2000 Dram which is the equivalent to $4 USD. The museum is not only a great value, but it is a great experience that will truly impact your life like it did mine. God bless you!
  • A great collection and well organized museum. Entrance is 2000 drams. Visiting this museum will surely give a clear picture to you about the history of Armenia.
