The outdoor spaces with the excellent landscape prepare the soul for the descent into the underworld of the tale of genocide, developed with great dignity and respect.
This is a wonderfully presented museum creating both an emotional and historic understanding of what this wonderful nation of people have had to go through in the past. more »
Probably the best museum I've ever been to. The exhibition is really moving. If you are in Yerevan, you can't leave without visiting this place. Some people recommend the guided visit, but I prefer to do it by yourself. The guide goes too fast and you can't read and see all the info or pictures. Give yourself some time just standing next to the flame and thinking about what we are doing with the world.
Well maintained site. Historical. Memorial to the sufferings of Armenians. Cathartic. The museum is well arranged. Civic amenities are available. You better have your own transport for returning. Otherwise too a short downhill walk will bring you to the main road, where one can flag down a taxi. Photography is allowed inside the museum.
