Dilijan Museum of Folk Art

In 1979, a branch of the Folk Art Museum was opened in Dilijan. The building was built in 1896 and belonged to the famous national-public figure, philanthropist, Princess Mariam Tumanyan. The museum is located in the center of Dilijan, next to the Aghst River. The last resident of the house was a folklorist and painter Hovhannes Sharambeyan, on whose initiative the building was turned into a museum of folk art. In 1979, Hovhannes Sharambeyan donated his collection to the Dilijan Museum of Folk Art, replenishing the museum fund. Traveling to different parts of Armenia, Sharambeyan created a large collection of copper household items.  The entrance is 500 drams.
