  • A moving visit. Unfortunately we just visited the memorial and surrounding area as the museum was closed (for too many days) after New Year.  more »
  • Remembering those who were victims of injustice...reminding us of cruelty in man's heart and mind over religion or ethnicity.  more »

  • Memorial place which symbolizes the worth damning event in 1915 made by the government of one country (and we have to remember about this that history will never happen again among the world). Especially poignant place at 24th April.
  • So impressive. A bit outside the city center but you can't miss this if you're in Yerevan. Definitely visit the free museum, if you want to read all information you'll spend at least 1 to 1.5 hours, but it's worth the time.
