If you savvy modern art from the second half of the 20th century you have to go. Art played a very important role throughout the soviet rule for local Armenians. Nice place to visit

For those who have been to art museums with classical and Renaissance paintings, the upper floors aren't necessarily novel. In my opinion, it's the Armenian artists that should be the central purpose of any visit. Between Saryan, Aivazovsky,, Avetisyan, Gorky, my personal favorite Sureniants, and...More

When the Soviet union fell apart Armenia refused to return many of the works by soviet artists that are now on display in the National Gallery. You can easily spend a day in this huge and diverse gallery. The best preserved bronze Age wagon in...More
