July 2021 - Unfortunately it was closed even though the notice on the entrance stated open from 10am to 6pm - went 3 times on 3 different days of the week and still closed.

luckily they do have some amazing historic details outside just at the entrance - that gives a peak to the history and very well detailed with relevant statues etc., (almost all were copies)

Great museum, especially the section dedicated to the Bronze Age. So comprehensive!
There were a few times that I was confused with the order of the exhibitions -this may have just been me walking the wrong way through the exhibits...
The only let down was the section on the Soviet Occupation-there was no English language information in that one section.
Otherwise-this museum is really interesting.

This is the best museum that I had visited so far. Highly recommended even to those who aren't so interested with museums as this one you could trace the history, culture and tradition not only of Armenia but the humankind.Collections from prehistoric times (Stone Age) till our days.There are guides who could of help otherwise they have signs in English though some don't have translations. STRICTLY NO PHOTOS INSIDE, every corners have cameras and museum attendants are all over to ensure no one could ever take a single snap and also they will guide you on the right direction throughout museum.

Located on Republic Square, this is one of the best museums I have had the opportunity to visit.

We had a museum guide who was very informative and detailed in her coverage of the artifacts displayed.

Stone axe-heads and other items from "The Stone-Age" era were on display as was, apparently, the oldest leather shoe that dates back 5,000 to 5,500 BC.

The collection also included coins, weapons, pottery, tools, ceramics and clothing - all of which covered over several millions of years of history.

English translations not available on all the floors of the museum.

Highly recommended as a place to visit ,

This museum covers over 2 million years of history (of all mankind, not just Armenia) and is a must-see stop. There are guides, etc. and also excellent signs. Even if you aren't a history buff, you should go here.

This museum is one of the best I’ve been to in Central Asia and the Caucuses, and has an extensive array of well-preserved artifacts organized to give the visitor a cohesive overview of Armenian history. English labels and plaques are rarer on floor II (medieval and modern), but exhibit explanations in English, French, Russian, and Armenian are posted on little columns in the corner of each room. Vigilant attendants patrol each room to ensure you don’t take photos and that you take the correct path through the exhibits.

No Photos allowed. 1500 AMD drams to enter. I've been traveling the world for four (4) years and don't understand museums that don't allow photos.
It's located in the building in front of the Singing Fountain in Republic Square.
