The museum has an informative exhibition, featuring a collection of objects from the Urartian period found around Yerevan. The site itself has been neglected and is somewhat marred by vandalism to the reconstructed parts of the complex. Nonetheless, the remains and view the hill commands...More

The museum will be nice if you have a guide, but if you already saw Yerevan's Historical Museum at Republic Square you won't see anything new here. Erebuni Fortress itself isn't only a place of high archaeological significance, though, but also a nice viewpoint if...More

Easy to reach with a taxi. The museum part is smallish and does not impress much. But the ruins of the old fortress up to the hill offers great views over the city. It is a rather heavy climb though. Also the fortress itself is...More

I very much enjoy ancient ruins. It is in good condition for being built around 700 bc. The museum is small but interesting. The earlier reviewer who said it was not well preserved is wrong. The beauty of this is it is not touched and...More
