A good start for Armenia

To get a first look to this ancient civilization it is a very good option. Unfortunately not much explanations in English that would make the experience unique.

Everything about the history of Armenia is placed inside this museum. Good for budget travel. AT the center of Republic square.

What a great education in Armenian history, this is such a wonderful place to visit. Very worthwhile. Some has not been translated into English but this is not a big deal. Lots of staff on duty, watch your hands. Highly recommend an afternoon spent here. Stop in at The Italian for coffee afterwards!!

It is an amazing collection of ancient artifacts. The older collections on the third floor are better than the newer ones on the second and first however the other floors are quite nice too. It is a great place to learn about the history of the country. They do not allow photographs, unlike most museums in Yerevan. It can be... More

Horsecart excavated from burial sites was pretty interesting. Not allowed to take photographs though. Not much on the Russian occupation & attrocities against Armenians. Impressive Stalinist architecture especially the broad... More

It is a good museum with a nice building. It was located in the best part of Yerevan. Decoration and halls are attractive. Because I am not a museum lover, prefer to dont say anything about other things!

Thank Abi V
