Yerevan History Museum, Armenia
This is the oldest museum of Armenia founded in 1931 that showcases the history of Yerevan from the times of the city’s beginning to the present day. Five times being replaced from place to place, it is now established in a beautiful building, which together with Yerevan Municipality composes a common architectural complex.
Its initial name was Communal Museum, but starting from 1936 it was renamed the Museum of History of the city of Yerevan. Located in the Yerevan City Hall, very close to the city central attractions, the museum is an ideal choice for a sunny day out.
Visitors will find around 90 thousand exhibits, including unique medieval books, ancient objects, military banners, the first telephone and movie cameras, weaponry, graphic drawings of foreign travelers who visited Yerevan, and, of course, the historical record of Urartu Tsar Argishti I with the date of birth of the fortified city of Erebuni. In addition, the History Museum of Yerevan also has relief models of city panoramas, created on the basis of survived drawings and photographs. The protection of exhibits is organized on a high and professional level to provide appropriate atmosphere and security for the upcoming generations.
