Azerbaijan National Carpet Museum Reviews
המוזיאון מתפרס על פני שלוש קומות נעים לבקר בו עבודת אומנות אריגה מרשימה ביותר השטיחים שהרשימו אותי ביותר היו אלה הענקיים המספרים את סיפורי התנ'ך more »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
Very interesting exposition. Good to visit alone, with partner or family. Really liked it and recommend to visit as a must to go place more »
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.
