The Bagradian Museum is dedicated to the life and times of Stephan Bagradian.  It was founded on April  22nd, 1992  in the former residence and studio of Stephan Bagradian.
Today, the Museum has 306 pieces of stored art.  The Museum's major activities includes collecting, exhibiting, and publishing work that was made by Stephan Bagradian or illuminates his life.
Thanks to a generous grant from the Fondation Université Française, the museum is undergoing an expansion in exhibiting and the systematization of the artist's archives with the aim of establishing a center on Bagradian studies. His private library is currently being cataloged and organizations of various conferences are scheduled.
