Lusik Aguletsi house-museum
Honored Artist of the Republic of Armenia, owner of "Movses Khorenatsi" Medal, Lusik Aguletsi was a collector, writer, ethnology lover, a faithful supporter of traditions and the only woman at her time to preserve the old Armenian "fashion", as she would always go out in traditional costumes, called taraz... Aguletsi managed to save more than a thousand different elements of Armenian culture, spending almost all her lifetime on it. Thus, if you want to immerse in the energy of old Armenian customs and see what a typical Armenian place would look like, take the chance to visit the house-museum of Lusik Aguletsi in Yerevan. The interior will make you feel as if you are in a whole different world after the noisy city. Apart from this, the visitors will find there Lusik’s personal belongings, such as ornamented belts, jewelry, dresses and traditional costumes, carpets, puppets, etc., most of which are handmade. The walls are decorated with her paintings – all wonderfully traditional.
