There aren't a lot of Armenian painters, so you don't have to do much to qualify being put on the walls in the Art Gallery. I would recommend to use the time somewhere else.

I enjoyed exploring this museum's numerous floors. Depending on your preference, you can make it through relatively quickly or spend hours in here. Even though it contains a nice amount of Armenian art, I would have loved to see even more examples. Definitely stop by; it's worth your time.

They had several Serov's we wanted to see. Surprised to see an early Chagall. Elevator takes you to the top floor but you have to walk down. why? who knows? It's an ancient soviet building but the art is well preserved with temp control.We were unfamiliar with Armenia art and they had 2-3 floors that we enjoyed. If you love art, as we do, then there is no bad art gallery. There was one tour group but otherwise we had the place to ourselves with the guards in each room outnumbering us. One unique in the world feature, you can take pictures but each time the guard sees you doing so, they give you an 800 dram ticket ($2) so you pay at the end.Novel approach. We didn't bother, though there were a couple of pieces I was tempted to pay for photographing (without flash of course)

Some lovely pictures of famous and not so famous artist, but in general some very good pieces of art. Definitely recommend.

The art inside is excellent but as with all national museums it has been neglected since the fall of communism. Some very interested international artist better known outside of Armenia such as Ayvazoski sp?
