  • If you are interested in painting, the place to visit is definitely necessary. Especially liked the floors with paint. People were few and you can sit by quietly, the only negative alert aunt-vahtyori closely followed on the heels of us and often chatted among themselves or by phone is quite loud.

  • We are here with an English speaking guide through it. All floors were very nice. Especially the rooms with frescoes that are so good that they have been given the label ' real '. Those were areas to be emotionally. We have enjoyed. There is an elevator

  • The museum is laid out over several floors that aren't well marked. I went to the top floor and wandered through the exhibit, floor by floor.  more »

  • 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!
