  • Hit the Museum accidentally honestly about Sergei Paradzhanove have never heard. Held in the Museum for more than an hour. Unique exhibits, which make us think and look in every detail. For pictures of the clear that the author had a subtle sense of humor, and that was very exciting, Paradjanov ambiguous personality survive bright life. Highly recommend. The Museum staff are wonderful people, always ready to tell interesting moments. Find a Museum is not so simple, no pointers, it is located in the courtyard. Better ask locals, they will show the way.

  • I'm not familiar with the work of the Director. But we recommended that the familiar was straight. Oh and reviews perfect. Had planned to go, stumbled accidentally wandering into that area. Visiting. 700 AMD per person. You can pay for your card. Fotkat cannot be, well you can for a fee as far as I can remember. Museum. This House built for Paradzhanov, where he did not have time to enter. TM a lot all kinds of stuff. Creativity directed in its different manifestations. Other gifts. Pieces of correspondence (with Fellini, for example). Really looks like. But creativity is so strange and unusual that you just plunge into the brain of another human being, from which emanates the fountain of unusual ideas. For example, made from sewing machine steam locomotive. Suitcase, turned into an elephant. Variations on a theme of the Mona Lisa. A lot of things. Funny, life, political or just home. Would call the Museum "Be Sergey Paradzhanov".

  • There are a lot of Parajanov's work, mostly collage and pictures. The represent the epoch of his life. I like it very much, he was a genius 
  • 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.
  • Must see if you know who was mister Paradjanov
  • Good collection of the director's collages and drawings. Good view of the Ararat, Hrazdan canyon and stadium as a bonus.
  • I would like to note that it is not necessary to be familiar with his work, to get a lot of pleasure from the Museum. And you can take a guided tour for AMD 2500 only.
