Definitely if you visit Yerevan, you have to visit the republic square. The history museum is located there. The entry fee is reasonable, but cameras are not allowed. The history of Armenia goes back to thousands of years B.C.. I was impressed with the oldest cart and the oldest leather shoe, in addition to the silver and gold accessories. So... More

This is just an awesome museum. It starts out with 500,000 (yes!) year-old ax heads made by homo-habilis or something, and moves all the way to post-genocide Armenia. Lots of information in English. It's a cultural and historical extravaganza. Do not plan for any less than two hours, and three or more would be better.

Armenia happened to be one of the most historic places I ever went to. The history museum really gives you a lot to know.

A good place to start your trip to Armenia to get an overview of the history. It took us 2 X 2 hour visits to get through everything and we skipped some of the less interesting 18th century bits. There's no photography allowed sadly. In the same soviet era building there is the art museum which is less interesting (mostly... More

Very small museum as museums go and the layout is very odd. One little room per floor. Not much information but you get the gist.

This museum shares a building with the art museum and where to get a ticket is a bit confusing. Pay downstairs for the history museum and upstairs for the art museum. The ticket spot is labeled in English as "Booking Agent" and not labeled in Russian. The museum itself is on the second and third floor, start on the third.... More

Asusual Armenia houses truly sensational museums...make sure you go with a docent to enhance the moments...the outside architecture alone is enough to impress anyone. Inside you can spend hours viewing Armenian specialties. Truly an amazing saw rial part of any Armenia visit to Yetavan.
