Genuinely something completely different! We see influences of the Soviet Union on our travels through Armenia, but it is part of Armenia’s history that is rarely talked about and often ignored. The Soviet Union left its mark with the concrete tower blocks we see in the regional industrialised towns, but did you know that Armenia had a great influence on the Soviet Union. Two remarkable Armenian brothers you have probably never heard of, born in the small village of Sanahin, who changed not just the Soviet Union, but impacted on world history. Please let us introduce you to ANASTAS and ARTEM MIKOYAN and be prepared to be astonished. ANASTAS was one of the longest serving members of the Soviet Politburo, from the early Stalin years through to Brezhnev. His life and career were extraordinary and never fail to surprise our visitors. ARTEM was the creative genius and co-designer of MIG fighter jets. One of our exhibits is a genuine MiG-21. NEWLY REFURBISHED AND NOW ENGLISH FRIENDLY

We visited and loved it. The plane and the car are both great to see (invented by the brothers). The setting for the museum is also very picturesque. A must see in Armenia.

This is a small museum, but very interesting. The entrance fee included a guided tour around the exhibit. The guide was lovely. Can’t take photos inside. Very interesting, especially if you are interested in Soviet or aviation history.
