#4 of 62 in Museums in Armenia
Browse through a lifetime of artwork at Parajanov Museum, documenting the life and work of one of the most renowned directors of 20th-century Soviet cinema. With over 600 items--250 of which are by Parajanov--the two-story museum features installations, assemblages, collages, drawings, and film sketches, including some pioneering 3D work and librettos produced during his prison term. Opened posthumously in 1991, the museum perches on the cliff of Hrazdan Gorge overlooking the city. Enjoy the panoramic view of Yerevan and ponder a bygone era of the Cold War in art.

  • Very pleasant and chamber museum. Take a guide with a tour, you can learn a lot of interesting things. I'd be back here. Free WiFi throughout the museum and a pleasant patio

  • Did not gather here, but the revolution on May 2, 2018 (to leave the city could not) opened for me Paradjanov as a person and a creative person! It became clear all his creativity! Thanks to the Great museum workers for the wonderful tour, for work during the Revolution, for the stunning museum! Highly recommended for viewing!

  • Sergey's works are very unusual, they are filled with pain, they reflect political and patriotic views of the author. Such another experience is worth a visit to experience new emotions

  • Interesting and must visited place in Yerevan. Sergei Paradjanovi was mysterious and genius person who lived in Soviet Union. His art is a little bit mix of creepy and weird, but interesting and meaningfull.
  • Amazing man! To contemplate the struggle of a true artist under a suffocating government is hard to bear, but he could not resist and the results are impressive. So much to look at, allow a couple hours, and I reckon mend a tour to help decode the symbolism in his subversive subject matter. Lovers of outsider art / stuff made of found objects will rejoice. Views over the canyon from outside are pretty cool too, don’t forget to have a look around!
  • Amazing place to know everything about this amazing man: Sergei Paradjanov. The museum abounds with his handicrafts, paintings, personal objects and some items about his movies.
  • One if the best museums in Yerevan.
  • Even if you don't know who is he (it happens), you should go there. It is a place full of positive energy and inspiration
