Berdashen History Museum was founded in 1987. The founder of the museum is Haykush Azaryan, an honored history teacher of the village.
The first exhibits of the museum were obtained as a result of excavations in the area called Aghjababerd or Kusaberd in Berdashen (work tools, clay jars, bronze-copper swords, silver and obsidian ornaments, etc.).
