An archer’s bronze belt that pre-dates the Babylonians, a silver coin minted by Tigran the Great, a 1207 gospel book handwritten during the crusades, a metal collar worn by a victim of the Armenian Genocide in 1915—these are just some of the fascinating objects that are part of the Armenian Museum of America’s permanent collection. Currently on display in the Museum’s galleries are traditional Armenian textiles, metalwork, ceramics, illuminated manuscripts, as well as an exhibition of photographs by the great 20th century Armenian portrait photographer Yousuf Karsh.
