Aksel Bakunts House Museum

Located behind a picturesque stone wall and wooden door opening to a beautiful, large yard, this branch of the Charents Museum of Literature and Arts in Yerevan offers an intimate view into writer Aksel Bakunts’ origins. Born in 1899, Bakunts was a famed writer of prose and film scripts active in the early twentieth century, until his untimely death in 1937. The 19th-century house is an attraction itself, having been maintained to appear as it was when Bakunts was living in it. This was the house where Bakunts lived for the first 10 years of his life and again later; his parents continued to live here even after he left. The rooms feature life as it would have been lived in the 19th century: a simple kitchen and bedroom, and the room where he wrote. The museum also has a small room of photos and facsimiles of texts, though much of Bakunts’ archive remains in Yerevan.
