Tour the Goris Local Lore Museum

Tour the Goris Local Lore Museum image

This small museum located in the center of town, close to the main square and municipal buildings, is easy to miss, but offers a great collection of materials from the Soviet-Armenian period, as well as special objects dating back to the Early Bronze Age through the present. Goris was a thriving center of Syunik, and museum collections include beautifully designed weapons, ornaments, buttons, belt pieces, and jewelry that suggest a long history of cultural activity. Two particularly special objects are a five-faced idol dating to the 2nd millennium BCE and a bronze lion from the 7th century BCE, symbolic of Urartian kings.
