A people persecuted for a long time, the atrocious testimonies, the photographs of the time, are a slap to the sleeping consciences. Absolutely to visit if you go to Yerevan, just to understand how this people rose to life.
Probably the best museum I've ever been to. The exhibition is really moving. If you are in Yerevan, you can't leave without visiting this place. Some people recommend the guided visit, but I prefer to do it by yourself. The guide goes too fast and you can't read and see all the info or pictures. Give yourself some time just standing next to the flame and thinking about what we are doing with the world.
Well maintained site. Historical. Memorial to the sufferings of Armenians. Cathartic. The museum is well arranged. Civic amenities are available. You better have your own transport for returning. Otherwise too a short downhill walk will bring you to the main road, where one can flag down a taxi. Photography is allowed inside the museum.
