  • Unfortunately there was a major renovation when we went there and there were only 2 halls open for viewing. Even so, the museum offered a lot of ancient artifacts to see and enjoy. We spent about an hour and could easily spend more. Tickets were very affordable and with huge discounts for kids. General admission was roughly $2.5 if I remember it t correctly. Also location is perfect, right in the heart of Yerevan. Parking might be an issue but you can take subway and arrive in 3 minutes on foot from there.
  • Only 1 floor was open when we went. Nonetheless they had a lot of craft and old jewelry from artashat that was interesting. For the price it’s a decent experience but nothing too fascinating, just old historical maps and artifacts. Maybe if we hired the guide it would’ve been more interesting.
