This is a unique museum where ancient (mostly in Armenian) manuscripts and books are displayed. You can see the biggest Armenian book and the smallest Armenian book, the oldest Bible and the first printed book in Armenian. There are manuscripts on other languages, too (european languages, arabic, persian, etc)
A very intersting place.
It's webpage is in Armenian, English and French.

Will add the photo soon.
