Browse through a lifetime of artwork at Parajanov Museum, documenting the life and work of one of the most renowned directors of 20th-century Soviet cinema. With over 600 items--250 of which are by Parajanov--the two-story museum features installations, assemblages, collages, drawings, and film sketches, including some pioneering 3D work and librettos produced during his prison term. Opened posthumously in 1991, the museum perches on the cliff of Hrazdan Gorge overlooking the city. Enjoy the panoramic view of Yerevan and ponder a bygone era of the Cold War in art.

Parajanov Museum Reviews
The visit of this museum captures your emotional feeling. The life of the artist and his paintings describe deeply what Armenian people have felt in their history more »
The establishment is a wonderful cultural niche, displaying very interesting artistic and biographical facts regarding this great artist. The museum receptionist was extremely polite! more »
Creative mind at last duly honored. The reasons of his imprisonment by the Soviet authorities are still tabu, but on a video on display indoors. Real Armenians - guides - have a hard time with reality of mankind. Alas. Beautiful place, full of the artist's presence.
You should visit and meet Sergei from his excellent art pieces.
