  • Just awesome collection of works by famous painters and sculptors is located on eight floors of the building, so the total inspection will take more than one hour) Here put more than 20 thousand exhibits! Like many visitors, I was most impressed by the work. This is the place to go for art lovers, and not exactly suitable for visiting with young children. From downsides-it was very cold in the halls.

  • Huge collection of artworks, amazing Aivazovski and Sarian, Surenyants and Kandinsky. And The History museum will take some couple of hours, as Armenians have long history.
  • Surprisingly comprehensive art collection. The Aivazovsky and Sarian collections are a must see!
  • Amazing Gallery with 7 floors of Art - 1 for European Art, 1 for Russian Art and 5 for Amenian Art. Everything from Renaissance to Modern Art is represented, with pieces from Masters like Botticeli, Reubens, Van Dyck, Rembradt, Courbet, Kadinsky, Chagall etc. I am less familiar with Russian and Armenian Art, and I got acquainted with many great artists during my visit. European and Russian porcelain were also available and I particularly enjoyed the English pieces. I spent 3.5 hours here - if i didn't get hungry, I wouldn't have left. It's such a pity there aren't more visitors to the Gallery. It sure is a gem!
  • I am so exited ) Because here i see the real History of this country)) very Bloody and Sad History. But Museum is so good. I recommended everyone come here)
  • Visit to see Vardges Surenyants' Salome, Aivazovsky and a number of other great artworks!
