The museum itself and the park surrounding it are free, though it's recommended to get yourself an audio tour or a (paid) guide as this will add to the experience.
You'll easily spend a couple of hours here if you wan to read everything, so note that the museum closes at 5PM (and isn't open on Mondays).
The "forest" of planted trees, spire and eternal flame monument are all part of the same park and offer a solemn and silence-inducing experience.
This is not a visit which'll make you feel relieved or which offers a catharsis of any kind, so be prepared for gut-wrenching stories.

A little trip to outside the main attractions this iconic museum is one of the must see during your trip in Yerevan.

Trigger warning. Photos of corpse, hanging, and other forms of death are featured within the first part of the museum so better just pass along if you don’t have the faint of heart.

My favorite part of the museum is the last stories where it was located on the ground floor (they are still renovating as of this writing). How Armenians build themselves from the ground up, being a refugee, telling their stories to the world and much more.

I even bought a book written by a first-hand experience for me to understand on what really happened.

We took a tour of the museum in English with our guide Hasmik who was excellent. During the tour we were amazed by what we discovered and we learnt a great deal about Armenia’s past and hopes for the future. The museum also has a small shop and amazing panoramic views of Yerevan from its’ monument. Visiting the museum is a must for any visitor to Armenia. Tip - Yandex to the museum and walk down the hill back into the city at the end to take in the view.

Amazing history lessons with many museums engagement tools. The museum has put together a mix of Audioguides, photo exhibits, timelines, context, films, etc. to tell the story of horrific events.

One of the best constructed monuments I have visited. The aura is one of loss but also of a hopeful future. The gardens surrounding the structure of the hill give a feeling that beauty and life can grow from a dark place.

Additionally, as a runner, I'd like to add that the park surrounding the monument is used locally for running and other recreation. I was hesitant at first when suggested by locals to do my morning run there but they welcome it there and you will see others working out there as well.

The English tour was mainly focused on what the 'muslims ' did to the Armenians rather than the 'ottomans'. An unnecessarily divisive narrative endorsed by what appeared to be a prestigious place. Such a shame, especially given that examples of solidarity from Muslim communities and leaders were included within the displays. The words ‘Turks’ and ‘Muslims’ are not synonymous.

My grandparents suffered the genocide themselves so it was a very heartbreaking experience to see what Armenian people had to go through. The museum is very informative and the guide was very knowledgeable. Everyone visiting Armenia should visit the museum to understand what Armenian people had to go through in their past. The photos are very graphic and could be disturbing children, but we chose to take ours as it is part of their history and it really touched their souls.

It's confronting, it's saddening, it's incredible that more isn't known of this cruel crime upon the Armenian people. The display steps you through the progress of this sad chapter in Armenian history and it's indelibly etched in their psyche. You can't help but feel for these people. A must see.
