This museum is a unique cultural object dedicated to one of the most unique personalities in Armenian art and culture. Sergey Paradjanov is considered by numerous critics of cinema and art as genius whose fantasy and vision have no borders. Great Fellini named him "Maestro"...More

Overall, this must be one of my favorite museums in Yerevan. Parajanov was definitely someone I would have loved to break bread with! A true gem.

Delightful. Will whisk you away from yourself and into a wonderful spin of new perspective. Do yourself a favor and take a couple of hours to witness the expressions of this great mind and great heart... Sergei Parajanov.

Very interesting way of showing the details of Great Filmmaker Parajanov, for one moment you transform to his world and feel his breath there. Also very informative.

Parajanov was one of the defining directors for the Soviet period. Don't miss this museum with probably the biggest collection of his works. It'll be worth you time.

I always just thought of Parajanov as the filmmaker; I had no idea about what he did when he couldn't make movies. The visual art -- mostly collages of mixed media--is really cool.

I hardly knew about his work other than his film the colour of pomegranates. The work created by him was amazing. It truly felt like a walk inside his mind.

I don't know, but the price is very low $2 equivalent 1000 armenian dram. It is very easy to buy ticket, no ques, no crowd.
