  • The bulk of the historical center of Gyumri dates back to the Russian imperial era and despite the damage of the earthquake of thirty years ago you can see beautiful buildings. A nineteenth century palace was used to create this museum that tells The local life in those times but it is nice to see also for the architecture.

  • Good museum. Learn about the town, the architecture, and the ancient society. Very cheap to enter, the personal tour is very informative. The musical instruments and foundry were my favorite rooms, to be honest. I took photos of the whole tour. I recommend tourists from other countries to visit the museum if they have time.
  • This is a very interesting place where you can get acquainted with the life, culture and history of Gyumri. The building of the Museum is a masterpiece of architecture. The building is designed in a combination of pink and black tuff that is so prevalent in 1860-1870-ies. in Fault (now Gyumri) stones. Only because of this unusual construction is worth to come here. Quite a large exposition of the Museum of folk life and architecture is placed in the House "Dzitohcjanov", which was built in the year 1872. That is why the Museum is also called House-Museum Dzitohcjanov. In the Museum you will become familiar with past and present ambitious and hospitable gjumrijca. You can see the layout of the big city. If you visit this Museum, you'll tour since Armenia 19 century to the famous for a rich culture of Armenia that existed 150 years ago. Fly in the ointment: there is no audio guide, guided tour must be booked in advance. And even no keeper (and was not one but several) did not want to tell anything, of course, for a fee. Just not very interesting to walk around and look at the decals, would like to live the story.
