#10 of 50 in Museums in Armenia
Appreciate colorful early modernist 3D paintings and graphic artworks at Yervand Kochar Museum, a small museum in downtown Yerevan. The building houses a substantial collection of work detailing the life and opus of Ervand Kocher, a prominent Soviet Armenian avant-garde sculptor and a pioneer of 4D art thought. Known in the West as the founder of the Painting in Space movement in the 1930s, synthesizing painting, graphic art, and sculpture, he moved back to Armenia in 1936 to become one of the state's best-known artists. With works representing all of the cities in which the artist gained prominence--Tbilisi, Paris, and Yerevan--you can get a great overview of the his work and life. Take a guided tour to get the most out of the museum. Yervand Kochar Museum is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Yerevan Edition.

  • They knew each other and exhibited in the same Parisian exhibition. No need to say anything more. Don't miss this museum and ask for a guide. This is a must see!  more »
  • In the small space of the Museum hosts the maximum information about the wonderful artist Ervande Kochare. The staff will tell in details about him and his paintings and sculptures. Visit worth it necessarily, it is really the work of genius.

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.
