This is a good place where you can learn about the local history of the Armenian poeple. This is a modest museum. The visit is free we also had the help of a guide through out the visit.

Small gem, not a big museum but definitely worth the time to go. Gives some good information on the history of the area. Right in the center of town.

Very old museum, needs updating. floor uneven and creaking at times. Don't forget to go to the second floor, they won't tell you there is one! Every group of visitors is accompanied by a chaperon who flips on the lights when you enter each room,...More
