  • Amazing! Impressive architecture building from outside and from inside as well. Each floor is dedicated to a specific theme and well designed. The Heydar Aliyev Center is a 57,500 m2 building complex in Baku / Azerbaijan designed by Iraqi-British architect Zaha Hadid and noted for its distinctive architecture and flowing, curved style that eschews sharp angles.
  • Heydar Aliyev Museum is certainly one of the best Museums I visited around the globe. PS: Make sure it’s the first thing you visit in Baku as Mini Azerbaijan section shall give you a hint to plan the rest of visit according to what you would like to explore more. Open: till 5pm Fees: 15 AZN / adult >6 years
