Unfortunately, the primary sources are missing, but what has been collected together is well prepared. Great architecture and the monument must be visited.

The story is described in a simple and pedagogical way, without insisting on the atrocious that is rather suggested. Helps to understand the geopolitics, the resilience of this people and the involvement of the diaspora. The guided tour in French is recommended.
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.
