Hovhannes Tumanyan House Museum

40 Moskovyan Street, Yerevan


Hovhannes Tumanyan  was an Armenian poet, writer, translator, literary and public activist. He is considered the national poet of Armenia. Tumanyan wrote poems, quatrains, ballads, novels, fables, critical and journalistic articles. His work was mostly written in realistic form, often centering on everyday life of his time. Born in the historical village of Dsegh in the Lori region, at a young age Tumanyan moved to Tiflis, which was the center of Armenian culture under the Russian Empire during the 19th and early 20th centuries. He soon became known to the wide Armenian society for his simple but very poetic works. Many films and animated films have been adapted from Tumanyan's works. Two operas: Anush (1912) by Armen Tigranian and Almast (1930) by Alexander Spendiaryan, were written based on his works.

    If you are interested in Armenian literature, than you must visit Tumanyan's museum. It was interesting to see and listen stories about writer's life. Also the tickets aren't expensive and you can visit it with children

    The place where the "heart" of the great poet is saved physically. Worth visiting once.

    Unfortunately, people there cannot speak English, but they are super friendly and try their best to help you even with gestures and body language :) The hologram of the Armenian poet walking around and reading newspaper was also interesting.
