  • Visited the Museum November 10, 2016 onwards. Still from Russia wrote a letter, ordered a tour. I have appointed date and time. In addition to the entrance ticket for one in 1000 AMD, around 140 rubles for the tour asked 5000 drams. In Armenia it is very expensive. Total 7000 AMD per double room, approx. 1000 rubles. But we don't just look and learn from an experienced guide history of Armenia. As a result, we have given a young girl, very bad Russian-speaking, which badly owned material. When we asked the question, and it is why, the answer is unknown, date accessed plates. So sorry that it took. All this can be read on the plates. The truth is, there are no Russian translation that very sad-only in Armenian and English. But with minimal English you can learn those crumbs that gave us guide. Sometimes it prompted Rangers ((((the same one and a half hours we were forced to listen to the terrible Russian with the wrong accent and almost all exhibits were called statue, no matter was this bowl, a small figurine or really statue in General, very sad or ask a professional who knows Russian well, or go by yourself, use will be greater.

  • This museum is of real historical interest as from prehistory to today it retraces the Armenia and helps to better understand this country as well as the "Armenian spirit. The overall presentation is very well done but the design is a bit poor. Visit recommended!

  • Although I know Armenia has long history this museum touched me. There are great samples on display and a lot of information. Only watching objects and reading 5% of all the information will take day....  more »

  • 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
