In years of visiting art museums, this is the first time I have encountered old masterpieces subject to 35C, windows open and sunlight actually reaching works. Fans, such as they are, are feeble and intended to make life a little better for the stern-faced women...More

The exhibition of the Armenian paintings is Very impressive! I was amazed to learn the Armenian National Art Gallery contains the largest collection of the Russian paintings outside Russia.

If you savvy modern art from the second half of the 20th century you have to go. Art played a very important role throughout the soviet rule for local Armenians. Nice place to visit

Me and my wife decided to spend a cool March Saturday in the National Art Gallery and truly enjoyed our time. The gallery has probably the best selection of Armenian art. The Gallery displays amazing works of Saryan, Aivazoksi, Surenyants and other prominent painters. Russian...More

There are some nice pieces here, but overall underwhelming for the flagship art museum. Enter and head past the restrooms that smell like a neglected honey bucket. Upstairs there is a small series of about 8 rooms. Takes about 30 minutes to meander slowly and...More

For those who have been to art museums with classical and Renaissance paintings, the upper floors aren't necessarily novel. In my opinion, it's the Armenian artists that should be the central purpose of any visit. Between Saryan, Aivazovsky,, Avetisyan, Gorky, my personal favorite Sureniants, and...More

This collection has some treasures but you need to really look for them. The organisation is rather erratic and the labels are sometimes hard to read if you wear glasses. I would concur with another reviewer who said the staff manage to make you feel...More
