    Beautiful museum in the design of a regular house. The museum accurately depicts the life of the Paradjanov.

    Great museum of well known artist and talented movie producer: Sergey Paradjanov. Was not accepted during Soviet time. I was very impressed by his surreal pictures.

    If you are into flee markets and grandma's junkdrawers, this is worth the detour.

    Wonderful and surprising artist and museum. I did not know much before hand and while the museum is not big, 1hour should do it, there are loads of items. Great museum.

    Strange place; it's actually the collection of collages that Parajanov did himself during the 15 years that he was banned to make movies (after his movie "the colour of pomegranates" in 1968)

    Музеи с душой - мои самые любимые. Чем-то напомнил Музей невинности в Стамбуле. Берите экскурсию или почитайте биографию Параджанова до посещения - тогда гулять по залам будет ещё интереснее.

    The best museum in Yerevan! Really enjoyed these strange collages. Unfortunately museum needs more ads and good pr-Programm

    Вход 700 драмов, фото себя free, экспозиций 700. Два этажа, много комнат, внутренний дворик. Все напоминает о великом мастере. Картины, эскизы, костюмы, шляпки, фото и кинохроника.

    It was an amazing place even for me that I am not a big fan of modern art. Go there with someone who can tell you the story of the works

    Здесь происходит переосмысление окружающего мира. Все вокруг нас является материалом для художника. Но не все им становятся. Параджанову этот дар был дан свыше. Потрясающе.

    Parjanov's artwork is a must see. surreal collages, absurd movies, spectacular statues, this place will put you in the weird vintage parajanov world!
