They do indeed have the 3rd largest number of Italian masters in the former Soviet empire....the tragedy being that most galleries are not climate-controlled, so the paintings hang in 32C heat. Can't UNESCO assist?

There aren't a lot of Armenian painters, so you don't have to do much to qualify being put on the walls in the Art Gallery. I would recommend to use the time somewhere else.

I enjoyed exploring this museum's numerous floors. Depending on your preference, you can make it through relatively quickly or spend hours in here. Even though it contains a nice amount of Armenian art, I would have loved to see even more examples. Definitely stop by; it's worth your time.

They had several Serov's we wanted to see. Surprised to see an early Chagall. Elevator takes you to the top floor but you have to walk down. why? who knows? It's an ancient soviet building but the art is well preserved with temp control.We were unfamiliar with Armenia art and they had 2-3 floors that we enjoyed. If you love... More

The art inside is excellent but as with all national museums it has been neglected since the fall of communism. Some very interested international artist better known outside of Armenia such as Ayvazoski sp?

Wonderful, especially if you are looking to get a better idea about Armenian artists. Lower floors contain magnificent ancient works and artifacts.

A great selection of art from Europe and beyond. The 3rd largest collection of European old masters in the former soviet union. Some lovely Russian landscapes by Siskin and others.

The Gallery has a superior collection of Armenian art and with one of their well trained and experienced guides, you can get a great appreciation of Armenian history along with the art! Most Armenian museums have excellent English guides for a very acceptable price,

We enjoyed our visit to the Art Gallery, it is a lovely big, airy building, but the collection is very large, and as you are not allowed to roam freely it get a bit tiresome. Save some of your strength and enthusiasm for the Armenian Art on the lower floors. The ladies that guard the rooms are not friendly at... More
