This is a place where the smell of old times still exists. Once you ester the museum it's like you go back in time and feel the breath of the artist, like he's sitting in the next door room.

A chance to gain insight into a strange and unique mind, which I have to confess I don't wholly understand, having recently watched 'The Colour of Pomegranates'. He was definitely a skilled and creative man and the museum is lovingly restored and maintained by friendly...More

This was my favourite museum/gallery of our entire trip. If you like “outsider art”, you must check this museum out. Very interesting and avant-guard. A little more English text would have been great, but not necessary. A real highlight.

A treasure trove of everything that has been touched by the genius of the great director. I watched one of his movies before the visit and now plan to see the rest.

Even our Yerivani taxi driver had a hard time finding this place. And I knew nothing about Parajanov, but I married a Russian and thus must do all things Russian-related. But as much as I would prefer to have hot needles plunged into my eyes...More
