  • The Isahakyan family home/museum is one of my favorite places in one of my favorite cities on Earth (Beautiful Gyumri) Isahaknyan Museum features displays and artifacts showcasing the life and experiences that shaped one of our most prided poets; Avetik Isahakyan is and always will be a true son and hero of the Armenian people; this museum showcases that in full glory. The museum was damaged in the 1988 earthquake, but has been restored to upmost perfection with no visible damage from the tragic event. If you ever visit Gyumri (Armenia's Cultural Capital) make sure to experience the Isahakyan museum.
  • On October 29, 1975, on the 100th anniversary of the birth of the great Master, the Isahakyan House became a memorial-museum. The poet's office, the Isahakyan living room, the bedroom, the kitchen, the cellar and the tonratun have been restored in the museum. The furniture of the museum has been preserved as it was during the author's lifetime. Here you can see Isahakyan's rich personal library, the ancient desk, where his first work was born, the wooden children's crib, etc. Here is the embroidered tablecloth, pillow, the author's very favorite coffee pot, a rather large European-style mirror, a 2 m high wooden sculpture, which is a sculpture of a famous writer. In the museum you can get acquainted not only with the relics related to the great poet, but also with the life of a resident of Gyumri in the last quarter of the 19th century.
