Mikoyan Brothers Museum – Alaverdi, Armenia
Born in Sanahin, among the majestic mountains of Armenia, the Mikoyan brothers became both prominent personalities of USSR.
Anastas, the older, as head of state until the Sixties; Artem as creator – together with designer Mikhail Gurevich – of the most famous Soviet fighter aircraft, the MiG.
After their death, the two had a small memorabilia museum established in their honour in Alaverdi.
In the yard, a huge memorial was built in 1982 – an impressive, king-size concrete cantilevered canopy hanging over a MiG-21.
