  • Here you can find huge collection of Armenian history from Stone Age till modern days. Also there is a big pinacoteca 
  • Such is the national historical Museum (public). The exposition of the rich variety of exhibits that could be the main attractions in many museums around the world. This is the heritage of the country and the State to which the Armenians had long been accustomed to, and accept it calmly:) without elation, but with dignity. Another advantage for tourists is the location of the Museum. In the very center of Yerevan at Republic square. If you have a couple of hours, and on the street storm, or strong heat, summer, this Museum will be the salvation and a pleasant surprise for you. You will not regret, but on the contrary will be very pleasantly surprised, and better understand and love.

  • the country's main Museum, must-see, but it is necessary to take a guide, because just go pointless of humankind on average the same periods in history, unfortunately when we came an hour before the closing of the guide was not managed to run only on ancient Hall. information in Russian is not present, and in English it is scarce, and read the inscriptions to exhibits quickly bored (such a knife the century, another knife, etc.)

  • 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
