Armenia is really is the cradle of civilization. We have the oldest shoe, a very old cart and the best jewelry. A must see on your trip to Yerevan. Plenty of English translations and manageable to see in a few hours.

Once of the best museums I've been to. Amazing how much of their historic pieces are well preserved and displayed. Pride in their culture is demonstrated. We recommended a guided tour. Bravo, well done.

I suppose you should devote at least half a day for this magnificent museum. The unique historical masterpieces are endless! Just don't miss the oldest discovered human shoe. You Can ask the guides to show it to you.
