A huge staircase, surrounded by sculptures, hides the entrance to the modern art gallery on each mezzanine. In the outer part, full of greenery, one can just sit and enjoy the view of Yerevan and Mount Ararat. 

The gallery was designed by architects Jim Torosyan, Aslan Mkhitaryan, and Sargis Gurzadyanand. The first part was built in 1971-1980, the second in 2002, and additional elements are still in process. In front of the gallery is a cozy park with statues, where you can just sit and enjoy the art around you or visit one of many cafés around this magicial place.
