Martiros Saryan House-Museum, Yerevan

(4.2/5 based on 30+ reviews on the web)
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. Using our world travel planner, Yerevan attractions like Martiros Saryan House-Museum can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • A successful combination-House artist and part of his legacy. The exposition is presented so that the visitor gets the most complete view of life, about what an extraordinary personality was this humble, talented person. Long life, which not only was! And near-immortal canvases of indescribable beauty. Visit the Saryan Museum! You'll walk away with a great mood because paintings there emit light and happiness.

  • An excellent combination of good collection of works by Martiros Saryan and elements of the House, in which he worked. Friendly staff, good exposure. There is not enough information about individual paintings Guide did not take.

  • Unlike many other museums, the martiros Saryan House-Museum has worked in the new year holidays that we are extremely pleased. Museum staff greeted us very friendly, and we gladly watched the work of this remarkable artist. Even in the cloudy January day can feel Sun Armenia, when you look at these pictures! Really liked the exhibit, which tells about the fate of the artist and documentary film that can be seen in his workshop.
