July 2021 - Unfortunately it was closed even though the notice on the entrance stated open from 10am to 6pm - went 3 times on 3 different days of the week and still closed.

luckily they do have some amazing historic details outside just at the entrance - that gives a peak to the history and very well detailed with relevant statues etc., (almost all were copies)

Disclaimer: My disappointment with the visit was based on the reconstruction/reorganization of the vast majority of the exhibitions. The entire exhibition area will hopefully be available to visitors in the foreseeable future.

My initial experience with the museum was very positive. The halls covering the ancient and prehistoric region is well-organized with various artifacts placed to give you a good insight into the culture, politics, etc. of the periods they are from. There are also plenty of information to be found scattered around the exhibition halls giving you great insight into the period you are now looking at, some of its major events/players and also into the location and excavation of the works.
Overall, much of this is just the same ancient artifacts you have probably seen elsewhere in the Mediterranean/Middle Eastern museums covering these historical periods. Nonetheless, there were a few fairly unique sights that did pique my interest.

It was therefore to my great displeasure when I found out that all exhibitions that date past ca. year 0 AD. were closed to visitors, as they were working on them.

I am much more interested in modern history and that is what I had gone to the museum for. So this was a big deal for me.
They had not displayed any information in the entrance hall regarding the closure of 50%+ of the museum, nor did anyone at the information desk inform me that I was buying a ticket to a museum that was only half open. And on top of that, they still charge full price.

I find this quite outrageous and an affront to the paying visitors.

I can therefore only give this place a negative review.

And even though my bad review may be very fixed in time as they should hopefully open up everything at some point, it will still serve an example of the bad customer service that you will experience there.

Only a couple of halls are open which is disappointing, but at least it’s half-price - 1000 drams- for that reason. (Unlike the national gallery which is full price despite the same issue!) I didn’t find the adoration exhibit all that interesting but some artifacts on the history of Artashat appealed to me. Wifi in the museum, photos allowed.

A RUDE and LAZY senior-aged female staff works in here! She asked my ticket then I showed it to her, no reason she started to say: go down with her finger pointings! What A Savage!
Perhaps she’s hurry up to back home around 5:42pm! What an excellent working attitude in Armenia! That’s your National Museum, well done!

Great museum, especially the section dedicated to the Bronze Age. So comprehensive!
There were a few times that I was confused with the order of the exhibitions -this may have just been me walking the wrong way through the exhibits...
The only let down was the section on the Soviet Occupation-there was no English language information in that one section.
Otherwise-this museum is really interesting.

This is the best museum that I had visited so far. Highly recommended even to those who aren't so interested with museums as this one you could trace the history, culture and tradition not only of Armenia but the humankind.Collections from prehistoric times (Stone Age) till our days.There are guides who could of help otherwise they have signs in English though some don't have translations. STRICTLY NO PHOTOS INSIDE, every corners have cameras and museum attendants are all over to ensure no one could ever take a single snap and also they will guide you on the right direction throughout museum.

The third floor holds all the prehistoric finds from hundreds of graves, we felt like being transported to the Kings Valley in Egypt. And you will find all exhibits with also English explanantions, such a rich culture and history!

The museum includes 400,000 objects presented in four departments.
Archaeology
Ethnography
Numismatics

The museum gives a thorough picture of the ancient times. In line with that, Armenia’s culture from pre-historic times up to the present days is introduced. The museum’s collection is beyond a doubt a rare one with traces of such eastern countries in the Armenian Highland as Egypt, Assyria, Byzantine Empire and so forth. 3rd-2nd millennia BC bronze specimens are presented in the museum.

Definitely if you visit Yerevan, you have to visit the republic square. The history museum is located there. The entry fee is reasonable, but cameras are not allowed. The history of Armenia goes back to thousands of years B.C.. I was impressed with the oldest cart and the oldest leather shoe, in addition to the silver and gold accessories. So don't miss it.

Armenia happened to be one of the most historic places I ever went to.
The history museum really gives you a lot to know.
