  • Among the many paintings in the Yerevan Gallery drew attention to two works by Yervand Kochar, which were very pleasant. that was told by the beautiful Karina, a tour guide and his granddaughter.

  • Kochar was an outstanding and visionary artist who missed the international recognition he deserves when he left Paris and returned to Armenia in 1936. This museum is well worth the visit.  more »

  • A must see for every art lover,,, friendly staff and amazing atmosphere.
  • A revelation of work of an artist little know in western art. This little museum and the tour was one of the best museums I've visited. And I've visited 100s around the world. I travelled to Armenia as a tourist but I'm not Armenian. I wish I could go back.
