Museum of Martiros Sarian
The Saryan Museum is a State museum of one artist. It was founded in 27 November 1967. Today, the Museum's fund has 247 pieces of storage. During 38 years of its existence the Museum's major activities were collecting, exhibiting, and publishing. The Museum organized multiple exhibitions, published various books, albums and catalogues.
In 1932, a house with a studio was built for Saryan in Yerevan. In his lifetime, the master received hundreds of visitors from different countries. Admirers of his art used to come here to join the brilliant colorful art, to feel the warmth of the artist's soul, to share his love of life, his admiration for the sun and nature. The first acquaintance with Saryan, as a symbol of national culture, became the brightest impression about Armenia. 
Saryan's 'recognition became the basis of a special decision of the Government of Armenia, according to which in 1967 a museum adjoining the residential part was constructed' in his lifetime. The author of the construction plan is architect Mark Gregorian. The first director who supervised the construction of the museum was the younger son of the artist, composer Lazar Saryan. But since the latter also was the rector of the Yerevan State Conservatory, Sh.G.Khachaturyan headed the Museum three months before its opening. He was the director of the Museum in 38 years. Since 2004 the director of Museum is Rouzan Saryan and the fund curator is Sophie Saryan.
The studio where Saryan worked for forty years is the most exciting part of the Museum. Everything here is preserved as it was left by the master. The residential part of the house is not in the tour program of the Museum. All items of value representing an interest for Saryan's art have been passed on to the Museum.
