Incredibly fascinating taste of ancient to recent history, lots to see

Visitors should have at least a couple of hours, perhaps more if they want to see and read. Much is in English, as well as Armenian, great displays, very nicely organized. So glad... read more

Visitors should have at least a couple of hours, perhaps more if they want to see and read. Much is in English, as well as Armenian, great displays, very nicely organized. So glad I made room to see this on my last day. Did not see other museums to compare to, but very happy with this choice.

It was an interesting museum with some very old items nicely displayed. However some maps could have English letters and it would have been nicer if the museum opened a bit earlier and not at 11a.m. - we came by the night train from Tbilisi and had a lot of time to wait before this museum opened and before we...

the collection is really good. but if you don't read / speak armenian, you get no contekst, which is super dissapointing. also the help in the museum only knows hello and this way. at least on the places where we wanted to learn more it was like that. we were there on world heritage day, so we got to get...

This experience was so much more meaningful with a guided docent tour - the docent we had was very knowledgeable and proud of her heritage and made all the many artifacts in cases more interesting once set in context.

A great museum to learn the history of Armenia with artefacts dating back three millennium BC. We saw the world's oldest shoe, beautiful bronze objects, ancient weaponry and some very interesting historical accounts of the different dynasties of Armenia. It was beyond our expectation. Major setback: when we entered the museum, there was no sign of ticketing office, thus we... More

We had a guided tour in this museum that lasted 90 minutes. The guide was very knowledgeable and fluent in English. She took us on a logical path in the museum telling us all about Armenia since 5,000 B.C. In this museum there is the oldest lather shoe ever found in the world, dated some 5,000 years ago. The quality... More

Beautiful illustrated old bibles done with vegetable dyes in this the first all Christian nation in the world.. Well worth a visit. While we were there, the open air.market was open. Such fun! We flew in on BA. here is history around every corner. Worth taking a local bus tour thru the country. Nona Tyler

There are some interesting things amongst all the usual patched up pots. The wooden funery carts are intriguing as are some of the bronze artifacts.

Anyone visiting Yerevan will not have difficulty finding this museum. It sits in a prominent spot at the center of Republic Square downtown. It shares the building with the National Gallery of Armenia, and this is bit confusing. You walk through the beginning of the History Museum before buying your ticket (800 dram) for the National Gallery. From there, you... More
