  • The gallery is small, but the collection of paintings is very interesting. I got great pleasure from several magnificent paintings by Korovin, there are other artists of the late 19th-mid 20th centuries. Place in the center, calm and soulful, fans of painting from the heart recommend.

  • The Museum will be very interesting to fans of Russian painting. The exposition of the Museum is amazing. It contains many prominent Russian artists canvas 19-20 century. A special place is devoted to the painting of Vrubel, which was stolen from the Museum, and then found in Russia and returned to Armenia. She set aside a separate room, which provides not only the painting itself, but also the history of its return to the Museum. It's nice that people remember and promotes this example of friendship and cooperation between our countries. Entrance to the Museum is worth 1000 AMD. Very helpful and friendly staff of the Museum. We came almost half an hour before closing, but we are still allowed, and even detail answered all our questions. Staff is fluent in Russian.

  • The Museum of Russian Art (the collection of Professor A.Abramyan) in Yerevan, the capital of the Republic of Armenia, is based on the personal collection of Professor Aram Y. Abramyan, whose greatest patriotism was this priceless gift to his historical homeland - Armenia. The collection of the Museum of Russian Art in Yerevan presents works by masters of painting, graphics, arts and crafts and scenography of an extremely important and very special period in the history of not only Russian but also world art (the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries). The museum exhibits works by such artists as K. Korovin, V. Serov, K. Somov, V. Borisov-Musatov, M. Vrubel, M. Nesterov, B. Kustodiev, A. Benois, N. Goncharova, K. Petrov- Vodkin, N. Roerich, A. Golovin, E. Lansere, M. Voloshin, R. Falk, P. Konchalovsky, P. Kuznetsov, A. Lentulov, M. Saryan, Z. Serebryakova, S. Sudeikin, A. Tyshler and others.
  • Relatively small but nice museum. With no knowledge of Russian painters I enjoyed the variety of painting styles/techniques exhibited. Certainly worth visiting.
