  • Usually in historical museums is not so interesting, but here you do not notice how time flies-such values, with such history. I advise you to take a guide, as a description of all the exhibits in English and Armenian, and many things are not described. Very interesting and very informative! a mandatory place to visit!

  • You can't miss this museum. There are guides who speak Italian. Are prepared and will show you the Armenian history, from prehistory to the present tulla. For fans, there are interesting archaeological finds. Pity that inside is forbidden to photograph.

  • Amazing heritage contained in these walls. Could have stayed here for days. Could be better curated, but what's on display is so good you'll be more than happy you did  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
