If this was just a review of the museum then the rating would be higher. The artefacts from Erebuni are few but worth the time. Three silver rhytons (drinking vessels shaped like animals) are definitely the highlight. There are also ceramics indicating that the Urartian...More

This is an interesting site but you need to be able to imagine what it used to be like. The museum is small with poor labelling, but that seems to be standard here. However it gives a bit of an idea about what the fortress...More

The amazing part of Erebuni is that serious interventions from the authorities were enough to let the tourist imagine the huge city built by Assyrians thousands of years ago. To enter the museum you should pay 1000 AMD, also they offer you a booklet (guide)...More

The Erebuni Town-Fortress offers an excellent panoramic view of Yerevan and has some unique murals dating back to pre-Christian times. Unfortunately, they have been defaced by what appears to be the work of locals. This is an unforgivable attack on Armenian cultural heritage. I recommend...More
