Museums and Galleries

In Gyumri you can find many museums and galleries. The oldest museum that still operates is the house-museum of Avetik Isahakyan, one of the most loved writers in Armenian Literature. Close to this museum you can also visit the house museum of another prominent writer, Hovhannes Shiraz and famous Soviet actor Mher Mkrtchyan. One of the must-see museums in Gyumri is the museum of Urban Life and National Architecture. This is where a taste of the real Gyumri lives.

Those who are interested in local art can also visit Aslamazyan Sister’s and Style galleries.
