National Art Gallery information
The National Art Gallery holds the third-biggest collection of European masters in the former USSR; many of the works here were appropriated in Europe during WWII. This national treasure includes works by Donatello, Tintoretto, Fragonard, Courbet, Theodore Rousseau, Rodin, Rubens and Jan Van Dyck. There are also many works by Russian painters, and Armenian painters, sculptors and graphic artists including Martiros Sarian, Yervand Kochar and Sedrak Arakelyan. If you can talk your way into visiting the roof there are opportunities here for sweeping city views.
