Art Gallery & Museum of Dilijan

Museum in Dilijan

Housing an eclectic collection of European and Armenian art from the 16th to 20th centuries, this gallery is housed in a grandiose building on the road to the upper town and is Dilijan's major cultural institution. Some of the older works from Italian and French artists had been housed in museums in Moscow and St Petersburg but were moved to Dilijan during WWII for safekeeping. The stand-out Armenian work is Arpenik Nalbandyan's Cézanne-like Children from Khndzoresk.
