“Great collection of Armenian art!”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

The Gallery has a superior collection of Armenian art and with one of their well trained and experienced guides, you can get a great appreciation of Armenian history along with the art! Most Armenian museums have excellent English guides for a very acceptable price,

“Great Art, not so well laid out!”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

We enjoyed our visit to the Art Gallery, it is a lovely big, airy building, but the collection is very large, and as you are not allowed to roam freely it get a bit tiresome. Save some of your strength and enthusiasm for the Armenian Art on the lower floors. The ladies that guard the rooms are not friendly at all and spend a lot of time talking loudly on their cell phones, which distracts from the art! We really enjoyed discovering some of the very good Armenian artists, if only you could start there and roam freely.

“Some Amazing Works of Art”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

The National Gallery has an impressive collection of international works of art which I enjoyed seeing. I also enjoyed seeing the works of Armenian painters. There was just too much Russian art for me. I really enjoyed seeing a special exhibit of Ara Guler's color and black & white photographs. Fantastic 360 degree views of Yerevan from the top floor!
