With over 600 items--250 of which are by Parajanov--the two-story museum features installations, assemblages, collages, drawings, and film sketches, including some pioneering 3D work and librettos produced during his prison term.

Interesting and must visited place in Yerevan. Sergei Paradjanovi was mysterious and genius person who lived in Soviet Union. His art is a little bit mix of creepy and weird, but interesting and meaningfull.
Amazing man! To contemplate the struggle of a true artist under a suffocating government is hard to bear, but he could not resist and the results are impressive. So much to look at, allow a couple hours, and I reckon mend a tour to help decode the symbolism in his subversive subject matter. Lovers of outsider art / stuff made of found objects will rejoice. Views over the canyon from outside are pretty cool too, don’t forget to have a look around!
