Erebuni Museum was established in 1968 when Yerevan celebrated its 2750th anniversary. A cuneiform inscription found during the excavations of Erebuni Fortress testifies that the city was built by King of Urartu Argishti I in 782 B.C. According to the inscription, Yerevan’s history began there. The museum is situated at the foot of Arin Berd hill, on top of which the fortress was built. The fortress walls were decorated with numerous frescos.
