  • Twice visited the Museum and you can still go, but the main thing would be good with a guide. Many interesting and useful moments, hints, episodes from the guide helped a little deeper into the creativity of the inimitable Wizard. An amazing and unique Museum. Gorgeous place.

  • Fantastic art work from great Sergei Parajanov. I knew he had also has artwork beside his great movies but did not expect this extra ordinary collection. Loved his glassworks and collage made for his movies as plan.
  • Amazing experience. Guided tour was exceptional. Highly recommend visiting this hidden gem when in Yerevan.
  • Really interesting and quite complete museum about Paradjanov's life and work. Somehow sad to realize that his genius has been universally aknowledged only after his death. Particularly ennoying all the photos of different heads of state and president who visited the museum. I think Sergo himself wouldn't appreciate that very much....
  • Find Parajanov's letters and collages in this popular museum.
  • Good collection of the director's collages and drawings. Good view of the Ararat, Hrazdan canyon and stadium as a bonus.
