About the museum
The first Children's Art Museum in the world was established in Yerevan, Armenia on March 13, 1970 by the art critic Henrik Igityan and Zhanna Aghamiryan. A little while later on the basis of this museum the National Center of Aesthetics was established. It includes the Museum, teaching studios of fine art and applied art, the children's philharmonic society and children's theater. It has branches throughout Armenia. The Center provides artistic education for school-age children with unique methods.
For more than 40 years Children’s Art Museum has been representing children’s art as a part of the world culture. The museum has participated in many international exhibitions and has received many prestigious awards. The museum's permanent collection includes more than 9,000 works from 120 countries around the world, exhibited in three Departments: Armenian children's works, International paintings, and Exhibition space.
Every month we open a new exhibition of the students of National center of aesthetics as well as one man shows. Thousands of schoolchildren attend the Museum and learn a lot concerning art. The Museum educates and develops their taste, imagination and reveals in them painting capabilities.
