Meeting point

Entrance to the museum on Republic Square

On arrival

The museum building houses 2 museums on Republic Square. It's the beige building right in front of the singing fountains, sandwiched between Abovyan and Nalbandyan Streets. We meet by the entrance to the museum. Look for the guy with the beige side bag.
