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

National Art Gallery is located in very heart of the down town. You should definitely pay a visit. The National Gallery of Armenia was founded in 1921 by the decision of the Soviet Armenian Government, as the Art Department, one of the five departments of the State Museum. Ayvazovski, Saryan, H. Hagopian and many other well known painters are presnted... More

The Armenian works were worth the visit. Other works displayed weren't all that special if you're used to galleries in Europe.

Definitely worth a visit. The main museum of Yerevan...the country, covering the history and art. Glad we had a local to explain what was what...would have been a whole different experience without.

Great art is housed here but disappointingly taken care of with open windows on a hot day, no climate control, no explanation of any of the art, with a little TLC this could be a great musuem.

It is not a famous art gallery in Vienna or in Venice! You will not find some great works of Michelangelo there BUT I do really believe that you will definitely see the colors you`ve never seen before!

This museum is not easy to find as it is above the Armenian history museum. Most of the floors are ok, but on level 3 through some not so well marked doors are huge rooms of altar paintings rescued from churches and replicas of wall paintings in actual sizes. Some of these are maybe 10 meters by 5 meters. This... More
