Martiros Saryan Museum is the right place if you need colors. It commemorates a very talented Armenian artist in its history, Martiros Saryan. There is a abundance of bright and meaningful colors in the house preserving the studio and some of the works by Martiros Saroyan. It is housing almost 250 pieces. The artist’s studio has been remaining as it used to be even after he died.
The museum building consists of 3 floors where usually people usually start their tour from the 3rd to the 1st floor by seeing the exhibits in chronological order. On the third floor, his works in the early period between 1903 and 1920s are exhibited. His works in this period are more realistic than other periods. On the second floor, his paintings created from 1920s up to 1968 are featured. In this period of work, he depicted the nature, life and architecture of Armenia in the most beautiful ways while he was actually away from Armenia living in Paris, France. In contract to the other floors, the first floor is less attractive in general. Drawing and sketches are found and biography of the last 2 years of his biography can be seen.
