Whenever visiting the "Echmiadzin Monastery" complex in Vagharshapat, you cannot miss the "Alex and Marie Manoogian Treasury House Museum". This is simply the treasury of the "Mother See of Holy Echmiadzin". With funds provided by the "Mannogian Family", the museum opened its doors in 1982. The building, a fine example of modern Armenian architecture, houses a huge collection of valuable religious articles belonging to the Armenian Apostolic Church. Among them, the precious relic of the "Holy Spear". According to legends, the spear which wounded Jesus Christ at the Crucifixion was brought by Saint Jude Thaddeus to Armenia and was kept at the "Geghardavank Monastery" (literally, "The Monastery of the Spear"), now known as "Geghard Monastery" (in Geghard), before being transferred to Echmiadzin. Take your time and stroll along crosses, chlalices, reliquaries, embroidered vestments, lanterns, carpets and so on. As the "Cathedral of Echmiadzin" is presently closed for renovations (and probably until 2022), the "Alex and Marie Manoogian Treasury House Museum" is the main attraction opened for visitors at the complex. Enjoy!

Very nice museum, part of the Echmiatzin complex, housing antiquity clothing, furniture, paintings, religious items, and carpets. Excellent English guided tour with polite and knowledgeable guide. Guided tours are offered in certain languages at certain times, so be flexible. Entrance fee was just a dollar or two. Total viewing took about 1 hour. Very recommended if you are already at Echmiatzin.

These were very good artefacts of ecumenical clothing etc. but it's not particularly my thing as I am not religious nor hold any feelings for the clergy.
