Museum celebrates the culture, and spirit, of the Armenian people
Three thousand years of history come to life at the Armenian Museum of America, where collections include everything from magnificent inscribed rugs and textiles to the tiniest of medieval coins. The spirit of the tenacious Armenian people comes through in exhibits documenting the 1915-1923 genocide as well as in artifacts – schoolbooks, letters, photos – from immigrants who came to the U.S. starting in 1890. Exquisite museum pieces include illuminated books and paintings from the 13th century (including a gospel book handwritten during the Crusades); intricate costumes, embroideries and lace; religious artifacts; 15th century pottery; and artifacts from the Urartian Empire, going back to 900 B.C. Check the museum calendar for a wide range of classes, concerts, workshops, lectures and films.
