  • Its a nice art gallery and very sophisticated. I can random see the arts, the gallery but there is something in it. Very nice to look at and very interesting.  more »

  • Half day we roamed the halls of the Museum, and we don't want to go away from here. Reward us steel canvas Roerich, who were in the upper room.

  • The huge collection of the National Gallery, ranging from Italian renaissance to modern Armenian artists, will surprise every visitor. It is virtually impossible to walk through all eight of the museum's floors in one day. So, plan your visit to either see what interests you most or break it into several days.
  • Mesmerizing paintings and artwork. Opens between 11-6 only
  • Terrible, no air-conditioning, literally impossible to stay inside... Most of the paintings by the famous artists that we wanted to see we're removed. Rude people at the ticket desk. It's a real shame when you pay to look at paintings but you're actually paying to feel sick from the heat inside instead making the whole experience unenjoyable.
  • 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!!
