What travelers say:

Matenadaran is equivalent to "library" in ancient Armenian language; but in modern times, it specifically refers to ancient book collections and research institutions. The full name of the Museum of Ancient Books is "Mesrop Mashtots Ancient Manuscript Research Institute". Mesrop Mashtots is the saint who created the Armenian script. The museum houses historical documents from Armenia since the establishment of the writing system in the 5th century, including about 17,000 numbered manuscripts and various ancient books with more than 100,000 numbers. Its collection is undoubtedly the largest in the world.
