“Very nice museum”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

Some very interesting pieces from European art (God knows how they ended up there..) and many masterpieces from within the country.
At the time of writing (Dec 2013) a display of medieval carved stones from ancient churches is offered at museum entrance.

“The oldest shoe”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

We went to see the world's oldest shoe but didn't leave for at least 3 hours. Amazing things displayed in this museum. I never really focused on old and amazing this people are. Really breathtaking.

“Very interesting”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

We were pleasantly surprised by the History Museum, it is very well lit and laid out. The building is in very good condition and the beginning of the exhibits are well labeled. There is an amazing collection of pots and bronze statues, as well as a very old leather shoe. It was a little confusing guessing which way to go, as some rooms exit out of the door you came in from, and others are one way, once again, you are not free to roam. The floor with Armenian costumes was good, and the section about the Armenian Genocide was heart breaking. Well worth a visit.
