  • The Museum is housed in the same building with the Museum of Azerbaijan's independence. A lot of musical instruments, unfortunately not here as in the Brussels Museum. There when approaching each instrument-door device, and music plays! Here there is no such thing, but color and variety of tools do not give up! Insanely too it's all good.
