  • Three stories with a lot of walking around and watching. Staff are on site that directs how and where you should go (you may feel slightly watched) the very history and objects that are worth to look at. Entrance fee went on ca 34kr.

  • The Bronze and Iron Age sections are poor. The 18-19th century section is interesting and the modern one is mostly from the Soviet era.
  • Very interesting place, also you can find some pictures of Aivazovskij.
  • Great museum to explore the history of Armenia and its people.

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.
