  • If you're into art, there are probably better places to spend your time. The museum/gallery building itself is splendid. The exhibits, though, are poorly lit and contain uninteresting paintings (not j...  more »
  • In the same building as the National History museum, and if you are in a hurry, I suggest you do that museum first. However, if you have time over, this museum is well worth a visit. It is a very larg...  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!
