    Detailed and quite shocking detailed explanation of the genocide. Confronting, memorable, and not for young children, or those easily upset by graphic images and stories. Entrance is free. Taxi there from central Yerevan will be 600 to 1000 Dram. You may have to wait a while for a returning taxi, but one will come.

    Worth visiting, much better presented information compare to other Armenian museums. Free of charge. Time to spend 1-1.5 hr.

    Genocide Memorial and Museum is a must visit to know the history of Armenia. Although we visited late in afternoon and so could not do justice but one can get the whole picture of how various attempts were made by outsiders to cleanse the local Armenian talent. Salute the survivors.. Planting tree by various head of countries signify the acceptance of Genocide.

    The English tour was mainly focused on what the 'muslims ' did to the Armenians rather than the 'ottomans'. An unnecessarily divisive narrative endorsed by what appeared to be a prestigious place. Such a shame, especially given that examples of solidarity from Muslim communities and leaders were included within the displays.

    Very informational and intense chronicling of Armenian genocide. Would definitely recommend to learn more about a topic not covered much in American history classes.

    An inspiring memorial to hundreds of thousands of Armenians who were slaughtered without mercy by the Ottoman Turks during WWI. It's design is simplistic yet makes a strong statement. It was so nice to see all the flowers placed by the eternal flame. This is located on a quiet overlook SW of the city center.

    I am afraid but this place is really hard to find! You will walk to the top of the hill (Tzitzernakaberd) and then? Hello... any boards/panels? I spent an hour looking for the entrance which is underground ...apart from that,this museum is a must-see if you are in Yerevan and will inform you about the genocide of the Armenians ... horrible story ....

    A very solemn place, magnificently designed . In memory of 1.5M Armenian Christian Martyrs at the hands of the Ottoman Turkish government.

    Be prepared to spend at least an hour reading about the genocide and looking at the pictures. Gone but never forgotten
