  • I am a doctor in history and I can assure you that the genocide museum is essential to understand the history of Europe. It is very well done, a beautiful historiography, good sources. Very good work and thank you very much for this free museum.
  • Armenian or not, you’ll get very emotional visiting the Genocide Memorial. You can’t but think of all the torture a nation went through. And the museum there cannot be put into words. It’s very sad seeing all the painful photos from the genocide and reading about the life of Armenians back then yet it is very beautifully portrayed and it definitely touches you. I believe all Armenians around the world should go and visit the Genocide Memorial and always be reminded of what a great nation Armenia was, is and will always be ❤️💙🧡
