  • I advise to visit for all visitors, is located in the heart of Yerevan, near the famous fountains. Submitted by very many interesting and even famous paintings.

  • Good gallery, not too expensive. Cultural and local art. It has a main pantry related to the history of Armenia, really nice. 
  • Very good collection of pictures! Went for the sake of Aivazovsky, but with immense pleasure watched and other works! Sculpture E. Lacks! I really like. Housekeeper of the Museum halls is generally a separate topic! We stopped at the author's copies of "peasant" Funeral Perov as one approached smotritel'nic and slightly carelessly says: "it is the author's copy, too, there is a Need." Four paintings by Aivazovsky-at the exhibition in Moscow

  • 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!
