  • Unfortunately there was a major renovation when we went there and there were only 2 halls open for viewing. Even so, the museum offered a lot of ancient artifacts to see and enjoy. We spent about an hour and could easily spend more. Tickets were very affordable and with huge discounts for kids. General admission was roughly $2.5 if I remember it t correctly. Also location is perfect, right in the heart of Yerevan. Parking might be an issue but you can take subway and arrive in 3 minutes on foot from there.
  • They tell you before that there are 3 or 4 small exhibitions now, and for 1000 dram it's not bad. I liked the history of Artashat city and the evolution of world/Armenia maps.
