  • A little bit of everything. The Armenian sector was most interesting. There are some very well known European painters too.It is worth to see it ,except if you have high expectations. Main disadvantag...  more »

  • Tip: grab your guide. We had a lovely girl, knows all about the history of painting, history paintings. Beautiful paintings by Aivazovsky (which proved Hovhannes), and Martiros Saryan. Two different styles but awesome stuff. And other paintings too great. Also recommend a Hall with frescoes.

  • Nice gallery, but the workers close much earlier than the schedule says. Got there on Sunday at 3pm thinking we have 2 h , but they started shutting down and kicking us out at 4.15😐
  • Gorgeous place in Yerevan. Here you can enjoy works of the armenian artists and not only. National gallery has a lot of works of Aivazovsky. I adore works of Surenyants, he was genius. You can see his work's copy in The Saint Gregory the Illuminator Cathedral too. "Salome", "Shamiram and Ara the Beautiful", "After the Massacre". You must to see it. I recommend to take a guide for understand better. You can see and enjoy without them too, but when you know the history of pictures - it's another feeling!!
  • Not too many globally known painters but it is a strong collection of art
  • Beautiful museum, you can spend hours, enjoy every moment. Well organized and maintained.
  • Service has to be improved and payments with credit cards was not possible.

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.
