  • Parajanov is unique in Armenian art of 20th century! His movies, his collages and art works are impressive, emotional, surreal. One of my favorite museums in Yerevan, if not Armenia.  more »

  • Pretttfun and zany museum but I wouldn't go out of my way if pressed for time.
  • Wonderful and surprising artist and museum. I did not know much before hand and while the museum is not big, 1hour should do it, there are loads of items. Great museum.
  • Incredible collection of Parajanov's found-object collage work - this renowned Soviet director will floor you with the intricacy and beauty of his artwork, done during his exile from film directing. Curated with evident adoration for the man.
  • 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.
  • It was just awesome... I strongly recommand you to visit Paradjanov Museum!
