I heared it should be a museum here, but could not find it. The place is big so anyway one can walk around here for some hours watching the "pyramide" and the eternal flame and the planted threes. From center it is a one hours walk up here.

Quite moving. We arrived a couple days prior to the anniversary and already the ring of flowers around the flame were beginning to accumulate. It was moving to see the school children come in and lay their flowers down.

The memorial sits on top of a hill with a great view of the city and the Mount Ararat, the symbol of the Armenian's lost motherland. The museum has just been renovated and contains many documents and photographs of massacres taken during WWI. Highly recommended to visit.

Tsitsernakaberd is a beautiful memorial complex build during the 1960's when Armenia was under Soviet rule. Throughout its age-long history Armenian people have had many achievements, but the losses outnumber them. Due to Armenia’s strategic location and also its religious views it has constantly been attacked and consequently, been ruled by its neighbours, but also lost its statehood. The beginning... More

The museum gives a detailed history of the armenian genocide with photos, documents and artifacts. You can't help but get emotional.

I was impressed by the atmosphere of this place. So simple, but so significant for Armenians. I saw an old man who was with his grandchildren, he can't stop his tears. In this moment, I understood how sensitive is this place. Unfortunately I forgot to buy flowers, next time I will.

This was a resoundingly memorable trip due to the way my partner and me trawled up the slope towards the Armenian Genocide Museum, then down the slope once again, without any help from the seemingly non-existent transportation system. All these, while basking very reluctantly in the scorchingly hot sun that pricked our skins and caused patches of uncovered skin to... More

Oh gosh this is sobering stuff. This memorial and museum is a short taxi ride from the centre of Yerevan. The memorial is open all the time and is a huge concave edifice and spire(s). The museum opens at 1000 hours and is superbly laid out with all the information detailing this wicked and unbelievable genocide of millions of Armenian... More
