Erebuni-Tzitzernakaberd-Matenadaran and other musuems by your choise


Erebouni, the Museum of the History of Yerevan was founded in 1968. The opening of the Museum coincided with the 2750th anniversary of Yerevan.
The Museum stands at the foot of the Arin Berd hill, on top of which the Urartian Fortress Erebouni had been constructed. When the City-Fortress was excavated, some parts of the structure were reinforced and restored and the fortress was turned into an outdoor Museum. A cuneiform inscription testifies that the city was built by Argishti I the King of Urartu in 782 B. C. The majority of the fortress was built from raw bricks. The citadel was encircled by strong walls in some places built in rows of three. The temple of god Khaldi occupied an important place in the fortress. The walls of the temple were decorated with numerous frescos. Archeologists have found giant carasses (pitchers for the storage of wine) buried in the ground. Ceramics, potter’s wheels and other articles used in everyday life were also unearthed during excavations. There is а huge collection of artifacts, sups, jars, bronze bracelets, glass, agate beads and many other things that tell us about the life of the citadel, the tastes and habits of its inhabitants.


The Genocide complex was built in 1967 by architects A.Tarkhanyan and S. Kalashyan and is one of the great achievements of Armenian architecture. The complex consists of 3 main monuments: the memorial, roofless eternity temple and the unquenchable fire inside it. Next to the genocide monument there are memorial crosstones dedicated to the years of 1988-1990 when the massacre of Armenians took place in Azerbajan.
In 1995 another unique memorial, Armenian genocide museum was built, where undeniable documentary evidences of the massacre, photos of murdered politicians and artists and genocide comdemntaion documents are exhibited.

Matenadaran-Institute of Ancient Manuscripts

The Matenadaran, the Institute of Ancient Manuscripts, was founded in 1959 as the State depository of manuscripts. The Matenadaran is named after Mesrop Mashtots, the creator of Armenian Alphabet. 11000 completely preserved handwritten books and more than 2000 partially preserved manuscripts are the core of the Matenadaran collection. The majority of the books have precious leather covers with stamping and silver pressing. Most are full of elaborate miniatures, very important elements of medieval Armenian art. The Matenadaran building (architect Mark Grigorian) has the advantageous position of being located on hilltop of the Mashtots Avenue ending part. It dominates the center of Yerevan. This building made of basalt, reflects the forms and specifics of Armenian architecture. The statues of Movses Khorenatsi, Toros Roslin, Grigor Tatevatsi, Anania Shirakatsi, Mkhitar Gosh and Frik are in front of the main fa?ade and the statues of Mesrop Mashtots and his disciple Koryun (sculptor Chubarian) are situated at a lower level. The Matenadaran has departments of Bibliography and Textual Studies, Old Chronicles, Medieval Chronicles, Documents and Miniatures Studies, Preservation, Restoration and Copying of Manuscripts and Archival Documents. It also has a library with a huge stock of Armenian study-related publications. Armenian manuscripts are on display not only in the Matenadaran but all over the world: The Library of the Armenian Patriarchate in Jerusalem, Mkhitarists in Venice and Vienna, National Library of Paris, Libraries of Rome and the Vatican, Bzomar Monastery in Lebanon, museums in the US and many other countries.
