The Akhalqalaq Museum of Regional Studies is the only one in the Akhalqalaq
region. With its unique exhibits it carries out a special role in the
Javakhq cultural life.

There are five parts in the Museum - friendship of nations, Javakhq history,
Javakhq ethnography, war glory, the Soviet period and that of intellectuals.

One of the unique exhibits of the Museum is the sun calendar. At the same
time it must be mentioned that because of ignorance and absence of financing
exhibits are disappearing from the Museum. During the 70s the copper cannons
of Paskevich's time disappeared from the Museum.

Hakob Hambaryan, head of the Museum mentions that if there is a small
possibility of state care towards the Museum, they can not only protect what
is left, but find the lost exhibits and bring new ones to the Museum.

According to the agency "A-info", the state of the Museum building is much
graver. It was built in 1830s and is now considered subject for
deconstructing, and it can be destroyed any time. Mels Mahtesyan, deputy
governor of the Akhalqalaq region mentions that the reconstructing of the
building is meaningless and the Museum needs a new building. The directors
of the Museum have no hope of getting help from the state. And the regional
deputy governor hoped that thee Javakhqians living in Moscow will try to
save the only museum of the Akhalqalaq region.
