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 many other contemporary artists, you come away in awe.

This collection has some treasures but you need to really look for them. The organisation is rather erratic and the labels are sometimes hard to read if you wear glasses. I would concur with another reviewer who said the staff manage to make you feel surplus to requirements - or even make you feel like a thief. It's definitely worth... 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 the world s a real treat

I really enjoyed this museum. It houses a fantastic collection of Armenian Art from ancient times to modern artists. Eights floors of exhibition halls and very friendly staff!

This is also a fantastic collection of Armenian artists of the 19th and 20th centuries. Many are well-known and it is a must to visit.

You can easily spend 3/4 hours walking around the gallery which is full of many masterpieces that were taken by the Soviets. Although their histories aren't quite a desirable as some they've been protected magnificently well for future generations and are very publicly on display.

Lots of History and staff are helpful, not easy to use a baby stroller inside as moving from one level to to the other is through the Stairs, but managable

The gallery, which faces the Republic Square, is well worth a visit. You need to enter the museum and then go upstairs as the entrance is on the first floor. After paying, you take the lift to the top and work your way down following a well sign-posted route. If the weather is good you get a superb view of... More

Official name "National Gallery of Armenia", located on Republic Square, this art museum has an entrance fee of only about $1.70 USD per person and can easily fill 2-3 hours of your day. It presents a large collection of art ranging from Greek to Roman to Armenian to American, spread over 5 floors of an expansive building. Unfortunately the museum... More
