The world’s first Children’s Art Museum was opened on March 13, 1970 in Yerevan. Thanks to the efforts of art critic Heinrich Igityan and his wife Jeanne Agamiryan, the project became a reality. From all over Yerevan and the suburbs, they collected drawings and crafts of young artists and in a short time, the museum’s collection became richer by a few hundred expositions.
After the success of the museum, in 1978 the National Center for Aesthetic Education of Children was opened. In the center, there is a children’s theater, a children’s philharmonic society and a studio of fine and decorative art.
Today, the Children’s Art Museum presents a collection of more than 15,000 works by children from 5 to 15 years old.
