The museum is located near the Urartian-time fortified city ruins of the same name. Up to 1940s, it used to be an ordinary hill. However, in the course of excavations works, executed by the delegation headed by Boris Piotrovski, a well-known archaeologist and future director of the Hermitage, numerous items of art and jewelry, tableware and even seeds were unearthed on the hill. These unique findings can be seen in the Erebuni Museum and the History Museums of Armenia.
A newly built ramp from the car parking allows free access to the museum's permanent exhibition.
