I was very happy, finally, to visit the Armenian Museum of America. The building is right in downtown Watertown with easy parking nearby. There you will find a most interesting collection of artifacts representing both Armenian history, and the history of the Armenian community in Watertown, which became a destination for Armenian refugees and immigrants from the Middle East. Currently, there is a spectacular exhibit of portrait photographs by Karsh, and in addition to a wide range of artifacts (including a bible that was passed down through centuries and rescued from destruction at the beginning of the last century), there is a permanent exhibit on the history of the people. The museum would also be of interest to those interested in Christian history. The library there is an open resource, and its catalogue is accessible online to examine prior to a visit.
