Yerevan Things to Do: 83 reviews and 183 photos
In the end of Mesrop Mashtot Poghota, up some stairs, is the splendid Matenadaran, a museum/library with a great exhibition of ancient manuscripts. On display are among other things the oldest illustrated Armenian manuscript, the oldest printed book in Armenian and the oldest periodical in Armenian. But there are also works written in Greek, Latin, Persian and Arabic.
There is a research institute connected to Matenadaran and as Matenadaran has got more than 15 000 manuscripts and 100 000 documents that’s good.
Matenadaran is one of the highlights in Yerevan and absolutely worth a visit. It is open between 10 - 16 Tuesday - Saturday.
