We visited here because of our hotel's recommendation. It was interesting to see how an artist in the USSR could be persecuted because of his works.

This is a small but very interesting museum in the center of Yerevan. It offers the visitor a very inspiring experience. Paintings, collages and unique objects show that he was much more than a talented filmmaker.

This is one of the must-go places in Yerevan. The museum itself is quite standard. It is mainly the unique and creative nature of Sergey Parajanov that admires you which is seen in every single collage, dress and video. Actually he inspired me to come back home and create something on my own: I made a collage with shells, that... More

Parajanov was a worldwide famous Soviet film director of Armenian origin. And he created a lot of great collages which you will find here

His unique pieces of art are fascinating! One can learn a lot about their own character by simply analysing his works. You should watch his movie, it is called "The Color of Pomegranate" , it is a mind blowing movie with its depth but telling the truth you have to get yourself ready for analytical thinking before watching the movie.

I've long been a fan of filmmaker Sergei Parajanov, and visiting this museum gave me a yet deeper appreciation for his life and process. The museum houses many of his drawings, collages, sculptures, and mock-ups. A rich feast for the senses!

This collection of collages, sculptures, paintings and movie paraphernalia from the most famous Armenian film maker is remarkable and different and wonderfully odd. It is cozy and eclectic. There are so many things to see.
