While everyone in Armenia had turned to modern clothing, Lusik Aguletsi, an artist, was famous for walking around the capital in traditional Armenian clothing she created. Her house became a shrine of sorts, where her vast collection of outfits from different Armenian regions was housed. Aguletsi also crafted belts, jewelry, furniture, and other types of decor.
After her death, the house was converted into a museum, where all of her handcrafted outfits are beautifully displayed. Throughout the museum is a gorgeous array of silver belts, bracelets, necklaces, and other jewelry. There is also a collection of traditional Armenian furniture and rugs. Photographs of Aguletsi in her garbs are also on display around the museum.
Know Before You Go
The house museum is at 79 Muratsan St, a 15-minute walk from Yerevan's central train station at Sasuntsi David Square, or a 10-minute cab ride from the city center. If you call a day ahead and make an appointment, you can request to be photographed wearing some of the traditional clothing. Drinks and light fare can be ordered if you need to recharge.
