Remarkable Artist
Aug 2019
Kochar was an outstanding and visionary artist who missed the international recognition he deserves when he left Paris and returned to Armenia in 1936. This museum is well worth the visit.

Such professionalism!

I wanted to visit this museum on a national holiday. It said on their site "Open every day." I went there and knocked and they were clearly closed. Then I called and they opened the museum a bit later for me alone (although another group joined) to honor their word on their website. I felt a bit bad about this, but I wasn't going to be able to see it the next day.

In any case, we even got a little mini guide of Kochar's works and life story. A very compact, interesting museum with a wide range of mediums and styles all from one artist. I recommend it if you like this style of art and enjoy hearing about the issues of that day.

Very memorable visit and exhibits, passionate staffs

Visiting this small museum in Yerevan is a must. The exhibit is very particular and different from other arts I have seen.
The guided tour from the staff is definitely worth the money because you can then understand and appreciate the beauty of Kochar's arts. The staff explained the exhibit passionately and with excellent knowledge.
Memorable experience, highly recommended!

It is a small museum which you would enjoy if you are an art enthusiast. It is in the centre of the city next to Cascade.

Should take approx 1hr to really appreciate the place

Kochar and Picasso

They knew each other and exhibited in the same Parisian exhibition. No need to say anything more. Don't miss this museum and ask for a guide. This is a must see!

A Treasure Near Cascade
Sep 2016 • Friends
This small museum next to Cascade is a must for those who appreciate 20th century art. It displays some of the work of Armenian avant-guarde painter and sculptor Kochar, including some of his 3-dimensional “paintings in space”. He has worked and exhibited in France during his youth, and was influenced by impressionists, cubists and other modernists. The museum requires max. 1 hour to visit. The visit will also allow you to better appreciate some of his larger sculptures that are on display across the city.

Amazing modern artist
Oct 2016 • Solo
This small museum is partially housed in the studio and house that the artist occupied after coming to Armenia in Soviet times from Paris. Returning to the Soviet Union was a mistake, as his progressive art would have ended him rather soon in a goelag. As a result he created just a few pieces once back, most of which he kept very well hidden from view. The museum showcases all his periods, his early work done in Georgia, some works done while studying in Moscow, his France period and the period after he returned. I highly recommend getting the English speaking guide.

A must see in Yerevan

Don't miss this hidden treasure in Yerevan. The three dimensional paintings are incredible. If you like fine art you will be mesmerized. I went there during the second day of my visit but ended up going back to buy some souvenirs and look at the artwork again.
