  • The museum extends over three floors and is pleasant to visit, and the most impressive carpets of the carpet that most impressed me were the huge ones that tell the Bible stories

  • Wonderful place to learn about the history of carpet making in Azerbaijan. All exhibits have explanations in English. The entry fee is reasonable. There are also lockers to store your bags so you don't have to carry them throughout the museum. Highly recommend for visitors to Baku.
  • The museum building is like a carpet that has been folded up. It is located near the Caspian Sea and in the SAHIL park. The museum is filled with exquisite and beautiful carpets. The only downside is the museum's closing hours. It will close very soon at Sunset hours. We didn't have much time to look inside the museum completely. But overall it was very beautiful museum. Fine art of carpet in Azerbaijan from years till now can be seen here.
