A very good presentation of the long history of Armenia and the armenian people. A systematic presentation that is both informative, fun and beautiful. I recommend at least three hours for this visit.

The museum is located in Argishiti st. just opposite of which, you find the famous wine and beverages factory Noy (visiting which you may delightfully taste best vodka and brandy in a sip!) Here, you kind of feel drowned by Armenian culture and get to...More

The bottom floor explains the history of the city through archaeological artefacts, and these are well displayed. There is also a nice maquette of the city. The 2 top floor showcases more recent history and folklore of the city, displaying furniture and clothes as well...More
