  • 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.
  • Beautiful museum, you need more than a day to see everything
