History Museum of Khndzoresk
Museums & Galleries
This open-air museum is located near Goris. Towards the end of the 19th century, Old Khndzoresk was the biggest village of Eastern Armenia. The village is famous for taking part in the liberation movement of David Bek. The museum exhibits photographs of life in the village, but the true experience lies in walking around the hundreds of caves that dot the steep gorge – some with the remains of walls, fire pits and even windows – and imagining what life would have been like for these cave-dwelling people.
