The ticket spot is labeled in English as "Booking Agent" and not labeled in Russian. The museum itself is on the second and third floor, start on the third.... More

Asusual Armenia houses truly sensational museums...make sure you go with a docent to enhance the moments...the outside architecture alone is enough to impress anyone. Inside you can spend hours viewing Armenian specialties. Truly an amazing saw rial part of any Armenia visit to Yetavan.

Nice museum with a combination of cultures and history but you should be able to speak Russian or Armenian if you want to know more in that place as the most of the staff aren't able to speak English.

I didn't have time to see the entire collection before closing time, so I focussed on the textiles: carpets, costumes and embroideries. Although I can't speak about the rest of the museum, these collections alone were well worth the price of admission.

This museum has several collections including antiquities, a section on the Armenian Genocide, coins and others. I was lucky enough to spend 80 minutes here with a tour guide who provided explanations which were very helpful. There is enough variety to interest most people.
