  • The price was 500 dram per person and 500 additional for taking photos. The art was absolutely amazing! Colorful and different. Definitely recommend to spend at least a good hour getting lost in this ...  more »
  • Certainly worth a visit and others, but here I found a favorite fabric. Came not once, be sure to cite here visiting guests. There is an awesome picture that can be lost. Definitely worth to include in your itinerary!

  • Usually in galleries of contemporary art collected paintings of authors from different countries. Here, even if only the Armenian artists lived outside their country. Very strong work, starting with 4 pictures of Hakob Hakobyan. Interesting sculptures. Bright and piercing. In Armenia are very fresh and contemporary art. This is evident in the painting, original and expressive sculptures, in stunning dishes and trendy restaurants in the lovely wine.

  • Arrived on Sunday, my last day in Yerevan, to see the artworks I'd been highly anticipating, but it turns out they're CLOSED on Sundays - NOT Mondays. Please redress this on the google page for your museum to prevent disappointment with others as well.

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.
