The small archeological museum at the foot of the fortress excavation site presents select finds from this and a neighboring site. Many of these- enormous storage jars, bronze helmets, silver drinking horns- are extraordinary. The museum could use a face-lift, but is worth the visit even in its present state, and once there- do visit the hilltop (separate review)! Tver,, a folk-song group (constituted by opera singers) gives fine impromptu performances in the building's partly roofed atrium, to whatever visitors that come by. They told me that they come all days the museum's open (Tue-Sun). As a public of one, I was overwhelmed by and grateful for the three songs I got. Could be that a larger audience'd get even more.
The simplest way of getting there is by trolley line 2, from Zoravan Andranik metro station, whose last stop is just Erebuni. Both the trolley and the stop are impossible to miss, and the price is 50 AMD..

We did a 1-1/2h hike from the center to the fortress, just because we were missing some sports.
In the fortress we were completely alone, maybe due to the 36 degrees heat this day, but we were rewarded with a nice view and interesting information.
The museum is small, but doesn't lack of attractions, but as said, a little course on history does help you to get it right.
Entrance for both (ticket is for both fortress & museum is 1000AMD)
There's also wifi in the museum.

The Erebuni Museum and the fortress in Yerevan are great places to visit when you are in the capital city. We did the tour with friends recently, the fortress walls would have been massive, the site is ruins as it is about 2800 years old now but the archaeological preservation is excellent here and they have made many valuable finds here since they started digging. The museum highlights a lot of the top things happening at the site and gives a good brief history of why it is here and who built it. If you make it to the ruins you should see the museum.

It's a small museum, but I think necessary to get some context before you visit the citadel ruins.
There are detailed translations of cuneiform texts which was nice. Some of the frescoes were really beautiful too - especially the black horse one.

Entrance fee was 1000 AMD

Something about this museum, parts are extremely good and definitely aimed at a more informed public, consequently entry level people like me struggle a bit (i.e. those interested & want to know more). Some very informed exhibits, others are a bit clumsy / dull.
It does give a bit of an idea what to see, before climbing up to the citadel.

Among all other museums in Yerevan, I heard the Erebuni museum holds the oldest artefacts, potery, khatchkars, bas-reliefs, jewelery, building techniques, dating from the Erebuni era (now Yerevan) during the kingdom of Urartu (2800 years), under King Arghishti the 1st.
Must see if you are an archeology buff.

This is the place where Yerevan was founded as a city. Every tour in Yerevan city should start for this place. The museum is nice and informative.
