The Armenian Genocide memorial complex (Armenian: Հայոց ցեղասպանության զոհերի հուշահամալիր, Hayots tseghaspanutyan zoheri hushahamalir, or Ծիծեռնակաբերդ, Tsitsernakaberd) is Armenia's official memorial dedicated to the victims of the Armenian Genocide, built in 1967 on the hill of Tsitsernakaberd (Armenian: Ծիծեռնակաբերդ) in Yerevan. Every year on 24 April, the Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day, thousands of Armenians gather at the memorial to commemorate the victims of the genocide. The people who gather in Tsiternakaberd lay fresh flowers out of respect for all the people who died in the Armenian genocide. Over the years, from around the world, a wide range of politicians, artists, musician, athletes, and religious figures have visited the memorial.

No offence but this place is really hard to find! You will walk to the top of Tzitzernakaberd Hill,and then? Where are the boards/panels? I spent an hour looking for the entrance which is,just as most of the exhibition,underground ...despite of that,this memorial is a must-see if you are in Yerevan and will inform you about Armenia's most tragic years.
An inspiring memorial to hundreds of thousands of Armenians who were slaughtered without mercy by the Ottoman Turks during WWI. It's design is simplistic yet makes a strong statement. It was so nice to see all the flowers placed by the eternal flame. This is located on a quiet overlook SW of the city center.
Amazing monument, a must visit but make sure your taxi waits otherwise you can't leave.
They call it the land of Kardashian's❤️🔥 Just an amazing place👌🏻
Historical place to honour the Armenian people that was killed. Very interesting and beautiful place with a nice view.
Genocide Memorial and Museum is a must visit to know the history of Armenia. Although we visited late in afternoon and so could not do justice but one can get the whole picture of how various attempts were made by outsiders to cleanse the local Armenian talent. Salute the survivors.. Planting tree by various head of countries signify the acceptance of Genocide.
The English tour was mainly focused on what the 'muslims ' did to the Armenians rather than the 'ottomans'. An unnecessarily divisive narrative endorsed by what appeared to be a prestigious place. Such a shame, especially given that examples of solidarity from Muslim communities and leaders were included within the displays.
An interesting, content rich and sad experience. We spent 2 hours and never got bored
Very informational and intense chronicling of Armenian genocide. Would definitely recommend to learn more about a topic not covered much in American history classes.
