I was not sure what to expect from this gallery since I haven't heard much about it, but turns out it's pretty good. The collection is a bit eclectic due to it being, as I understood, in significant part contributed by donors but has some...More

If you're into art, there are probably better places to spend your time. The museum/gallery building itself is splendid. The exhibits, though, are poorly lit and contain uninteresting paintings (not just Armenian artists) from the 16th century through the mid 20th century. There is very...More

In the same building as the National History museum, and if you are in a hurry, I suggest you do that museum first. However, if you have time over, this museum is well worth a visit. It is a very large museum. On the top...More

In years of visiting art museums, this is the first time I have encountered old masterpieces subject to 35C, windows open and sunlight actually reaching works. Fans, such as they are, are feeble and intended to make life a little better for the stern-faced women...More

The exhibition of the Armenian paintings is Very impressive! I was amazed to learn the Armenian National Art Gallery contains the largest collection of the Russian paintings outside Russia. So beautiful! I don't recommend wasting your time and visiting the exhibition of European paintings. I...More

If you savvy modern art from the second half of the 20th century you have to go. Art played a very important role throughout the soviet rule for local Armenians. Nice place to visit

Me and my wife decided to spend a cool March Saturday in the National Art Gallery and truly enjoyed our time. The gallery has probably the best selection of Armenian art. The Gallery displays amazing works of Saryan, Aivazoksi, Surenyants and other prominent painters. Russian...More

There are some nice pieces here, but overall underwhelming for the flagship art museum. Enter and head past the restrooms that smell like a neglected honey bucket. Upstairs there is a small series of about 8 rooms. Takes about 30 minutes to meander slowly and...More
