  • Very rich Museum of relics and fairly comprehensive explanations. It is not very large, in an hour and something we'd seen everything.

  • It was great and I love the plase Of course you should respect to the laws and no picture gotta cached! By the way this place should be visited if you're traveling to Yereven 
  • Unfortunately, no annotations in Russian, Armenian and English only. So a lot of that was unclear. But the collection even so interesting. I especially like the girl who liked vintage jewelry and apparel, household items.

  • Great museum! The excursion in English is very interesting, the guide knows a lot and tells it with enthusiasm. We spent 4 hours there but could walk there the whole day with her if she had a possibility.
  • Each floor has it's own history. Learn about Armenian history. The building is also beautiful from inside ;)
  • If you look closely, you can see that every bad review is written by muslim. You ask why? Because these are the Azerbaijan people. Thats funny, because there have never been there )))
  • A must visit if your are interested on the ancient history of Armenia. Entrance fee 1000 ARM
  • Nice museum, big collection but not always with english subitles
