Parajanov Museum, Yerevan

4.8
#4 of 50 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.

  • Sergei Parajanov's creativity is quite difficult to understand, but the museum visit I recommend. Definitely need a guide. It is in a museum. But they did not offer to wait for the tour. You need to ask. A very beautiful terrace with a view of the front of the House.

  • My recommendation is for the tourists who travel to Armenia. Parajanov museum is a must visit place, because: 1. It's the home-museum of the geniuse Sergey Parajanov, whose art is very special and who...  more »
  • Be sure to visit the Museum! Take your time, go, see, breathe air museum. If you're lucky-mingle with Zaven SARGSYAN. It is the soul of the Museum. And don't forget to take a tour. The paltry salaries.

  • 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.
  • Amazing experience. Guided tour was exceptional. Highly recommend visiting this hidden gem when in Yerevan.

Where to stay in Yerevan

When it comes to accommodations in Yerevan, you'll find a number and a range befitting its status as the capital and most populous city in the country. Look in the Kentron (center) district, where by far the greatest number and best quality hotels can be found. Hotels in old Soviet blocks, grand former administrative buildings, or newly built high-rises offer standard to luxury rooms, along with a set of smaller hostels. With prices notoriously high for the region (and many visitors using Yerevan as a base from which to see the country), consider renting an apartment if staying for a longer period.
