  • A superb collection of fine art from antiquity to our time. Especially liked the halls with works of Russian and Armenian artists. The canvases are presented many Russian classics. Unfortunately, Saryan's works was closed for repairs (

  • Lovely visit here. It's next to the Singing Fountain and very helpful staff. There are 6 floors and all have fabulous pieces on display, you can also get great views over the square. Worth a visit.  more »

  • A Fairly good collection of art, I had a good time there.
  • 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😐
