The gallery has an good collection of European and Russian painters, however the highlight for me was its Armenian (especially early and medieval art). It is spacious, very well designed - not to be missed by an art lover!

A little bit of everything. The Armenian sector was most interesting. There are some very well known European painters too.It is worth to see it ,except if you have high expectations. Main disadvantage: No air conditioning. It was too warm for a summer day. It...More

The museum is laid out over several floors that aren't well marked. I went to the top floor and wandered through the exhibit, floor by floor.

I was not sure what to expect from this gallery since I haven't heard much about it, but turns out it's pretty good. The collection is a bit eclectic due to it being, as I understood, in significant part contributed by donors but has some...More

If you're into art, there are probably better places to spend your time. The museum/gallery building itself is splendid. The exhibits, though, are poorly lit and contain uninteresting paintings (not just Armenian artists) from the 16th century through the mid 20th century. There is very...More
