Martiros Saryan House-Museum, Yerevan

4.5
Appreciate the paintings and graphic art of Armenia’s most celebrated painter at Martiros Saryan House-Museum, a house with a studio built especially for the painter in 1932 by Soviet Armenian authorities. It was expanded into museum during the artist's lifetime in 1967 by another benefactor, Mark Gregorian. With 247 pieces on display, this three-story museum details the life of the French-fauvist-influenced painter, widely seen as the father of modern Armenian painting and immortalized on the 20,000 dram banknote. Start your museum tour on the third floor, as this level houses the earliest work.

    Beautiful renovated Museum with works and painter Martiros Saryan life objects. On the three floors of the Museum are furnished the rooms with paintings of this important artist inspired by the colors and the lights of Gauguin and Matisse, revamped with themes of culture and Armenian tradition so unique and valuable. Beautiful house in which he lived with a family setting, full of memorabilia and furnishings that were of the master's life. Not to be missed!

Where to stay in Yerevan

When it comes to accommodations in Yerevan, you'll find a number and a range befitting its status as the capital and most populous city in the country. Look in the Kentron (center) district, where by far the greatest number and best quality hotels can be found. Hotels in old Soviet blocks, grand former administrative buildings, or newly built high-rises offer standard to luxury rooms, along with a set of smaller hostels. With prices notoriously high for the region (and many visitors using Yerevan as a base from which to see the country), consider renting an apartment if staying for a longer period.
