Many precious archaeological finds that testify to the cradle of this extremely evolved civilization. There is also the recent discovery of the oldest shoe found in the Armenian mountains. Don't miss it!
This museum is wow! Its full of very old and rich history objects dating to the earliest history of man. It is very big and you need time to visit everything. Its a very nice building and you can not get lost. Everything is very well placed. Personel speaks good english and will help you if you need it. Must visit place!!!
Very unique collection and will be extremely lovable by those who are into museum. The sad part of the visit is you don't get to click any photos inside nor you can use a stroller, the staff are very friendly and guide you easily throughout the museum which is a lot of walking. If you are going there with kids, be wary of carrying them otherwise skip it as it will tire you to the core, but definitely a place to visit and see some historical artifacts.
