The Pan-Armenian National Movement or Armenian Allnational Movement (Armenian: Հայոց Համազգային Շարժում, Hayots Hamazgain Sharzhum) is a political party in Armenia.

It was founded by Levon Ter-Petrossian in 1989 and became the ruling party when it swept the 1990 elections. The party lost its majority when Ter-Petrossian resigned as president of the republic in 1998 and became an opposition party. Presently it is without parliamentary representation.

Pan-Armenian National Movement spearheaded the formation of Armenian National Congress, a wide opposition coalition of many opposition Armenian parties headed by Levon Ter-Petrossian in opposition to the current ruling governmental coalition headed by Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan

Currently the party is led by Aram Manukyan. Since 2010 the party has been a member of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe Party (ALDE Party).
