The Memorial House – Museum of the Brothers Orbeli
I am glad that my sons chose the material insecurity for the sake of science and the nation, whose children they are, which needs outstanding scientists such as them to foster respect for science among humanity.
Abgar Orbeli, 1911
In a picturesque nook of Armenia, in the town of Tsaghkadzor, stands the memorial-house museum of the brothers Orbeli.

In 1972, July 21 the Ministry of Culture decided to turn the house into a museum to glorify their memory.
The museum aims at preserving and passing to the generations all the relics and exhibits of the Orbeli family.
Now the museum is under the auspices of the Ministry of Culture.
