  • Good fun. Loved the video presentation on how different carpets are made. There were also couple of women making carpets. Tad expensive for us to buy but good fun to watch
  • It's second most interesting Museum in Baku city center for me. First is Azerbaijan Art Museum, second is this one. There is a lot of beautiful and old carpets available to see. And to get an information about them, their making techniques and regions. I have been two times inside. Want to go again. The tickets price is 7 azn about 3.5 $ now. I think it's amazing for that price. And you can buy something traditional from Azerbaijan on the first floor. But the selling handmade items a little bit expensive in my opinion
