Armenian Genocide Museum reviews

Amazing history lessons with many museums engagement tools. The museum has put together a mix of Audioguides, photo exhibits, timelines, context, films, etc. to tell the story of horrific events. more »
By far the most impressing and dignified museum and memorial place I have seen. A must visit to understand this heavy period of time. Thorough and informative reprocessing of the darkest chapter in the Armenian culture. Very unapologetic but still doesn't come off as 1-sided. We were there for 2 hours. Memorial part and the museum itself are displayed in pressing but adequate gravity. We came out humble and contemplative even though we engaged this topic frequently before. It really helps with putting things in perspective and understanding this great Armenian culture and helps to learn about the huge impact this was on the ethnicity of Minor Asia
Very interesting to learn about the history. Is free entrance and last entrance at 15:30. It closes at 16:00.
