“well worth it”

Erebuni Town-Fortress
Ranked #28 of 225 things to do in Yerevan
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 October 2017

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 over the city are impressive. On the whole, well worth visiting.

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 you want to throw a glance at the city from a different angle.

It's a pity the restoration work has not been taken with more care. It's a vital historic place. The frescos can still be seen but the stone work needs better work. Also needs a clean up of the area.

This is a small museum, but it is a good introduction to the history of Yerevan. It cannot be reached on foot from the city Venter and a taxi is probably the best way to get there.
A below average souvenir shop. The staff was polite and helpful.

About 6 km outside of the center was Erebuni Fortress & Museum, one of the few ruins left in Yerevan. The sight had significantly less visitors compared to other sights most likely due to its distance from the city. The small museum contains a collection of items excavated from the fortress area and is a good introduction. The fortress is a short climb and offers some great views of Yerevan. It is one of the very few old Armenian sights that is not a church or a monastery so it was well worth a stop.
