    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.

    It is a very emotional place. From the platform of the monument you can see Yerevan. In winter time you can see the holly mountain of the armenian nation: Ararat.

    Too much anti muslim propaganda here, it was the turkish occupation that you were at war with not the muslims.

    Super unfriendly, lazy staff treat me in a manner as if I am a criminal Turk/Azeri responsible for the genocide. To be fairly honest, I do not feel welcome: when I greeted the staff, I only received a poker faced look in return. When I tried to find the toilet before leaving, my treatment at the hands of the receptionist was even more disgusting. Never had I been treated in such a outrageous way in any museums I have visited! The staff at the National Museum of Armenia are so much nicer. What is wrong with the receptionists? I know the genocide was a hard event and working in this museum may make you depressed, but why cannot you be more polite and friendly to international guests interested in your country? YOU, the staff working here, are a complete disgrace to the beautiful country of Armenia! I did not learn any new facts about the Genocide after spending two hours in the museum. The exhibition is not that detailed for me as a person who is interested in and has read something about the history of Armenia but it is fine for visitors unfamiliar with the genocide. To speak in a even handed manner, the exhibition is a bit biased, especially the part concerning Germany's so called complicity in genocide, and the arguments put forward against Germany is lame and unconvincing in equal measure in the eyes of any person familiar with the history of the Armenian Holocaust, not to mention that the Young Turks' reasons for carrying out the Genocide were either completely glossed over or downright distorted in most cases. Buy yeah, the museum tells the story alone official line so that is what you would expect.

    An impressive monument raising awareness of real and horribly cruel historical events. While the turkish government still denies the ottoman's genocides, everyone who loves Armenia should come here. Especially the museum accurately depicts the pain and suffering during the genocide and the struggle to spread the message of what really happened even 50 or 100 years later. It's an honest exposure of history.

    The name says it all. It covers what happened in late 19 teens in 50 information boards and lots of pics, videos and other displays. It isn't what you would call objective but it's informative. I took about 90 minutes from start to end and that seemed a good timeframe. It's not the easiest to take in but think it's important to read about it.

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