  Republic Square, Yerevan

National Art Gallery is situated on the floors above the State Museum of Armenian History. It is a huge museum, covering five floors, plus a temporary exhibition downstairs from the reception. There are many works by Armenian and Russian painters, but also a lot of works made by European artists such as Jan Van Dyck, Rubens, Rousseau, Coubert and more. Many of those paintings came to the country during World War II, when Armenia was part of the USSR.

Don't do the same mistake as I did and try to see both the National Art Gallery and the State Museum of Armenian History in the same day, one after the other. It will just be too much to take in.

Entrance fee is 800 drams (June 2006).
The museum is closed on Mondays.
You are not allowed o take photos.
