The Charles Aznavour Museum is a museum in Yerevan, Armenia. The museum opened in 2011. French-Armenian singer Charles Aznavour cut the ribbon of the new museum at the opening event, which was attended by French President Nicholas Sarkozy and Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan.[1]

The museum occupies a five-storey building near Yerevan Cascade and includes an open-air concert hall, as well as Aznavour`s apartment and the museum itself. The exhibition includes Aznavour's discs, albums, books, music awards, posters and photographs.

The museum project began in 2007, funded by the Armenian government. Aznavour’s foundation decorated the interior of the museum.[2]
