Museum Tour

Front of Museum, Street-side: 

The two brass figures are copies of Urartian deities found in the excavations in Armenia.  They bear a striking likeness to Babylonian and Assyrian deities, combining human and animal attributes.  

Downstairs Inner Lobby:  
The inscription on the wall facing the front doors commemorates the opening of the museum and excavation directors.  The museum and site were officially opened to the public in 1968, which was the 2,750th anniversary of the founding of Erebuni.  The city of Yerevan traces its birth to the same date.  Though actually much older, considering earlier versions of the city at Shengavit and Lake Yerevan (4000 BC and 90,000 BC respectively) Erebuni marks the beginning of 2,780 years of continuous inhabitation.
