  • Very interesting place for the visitors of Baku and just curious people. The museum has been renovated and changed its location. Having the shape of the carpet itself it represents very modern installation of different carpets woven in different styles and regions. Along with the old historical carpets one can find contemporary carpets as well. Museum has very good illumination so the each carpet is visually well presented. It has souvenirs shop. Though I personally think this shop is expensive. In general it is worth to be visited place in Baku.
  • • Duration of my visit :- 2 Hours ⏰ . • Experience : 1)) Loved the building architecture and the surrounding park 👍. 2)) A big collection of carpets, cloths, and tools that are made of cotton and wool . • Cameras are not allowed as they will ask you to put your in a locker but you can use your phone instead !

  • It was amazing amazing amazing, lot of history and culture. If you are a student do not forget to take it with you, you will get a good discount. It doesn't matter which university or which country you studying in.
  • Azerbaijan Carpet Museum reopened its doors in September 2014 following a highly anticipated move from the second floor of Baku’s Museum Centre. The structure of the Carpet Museum in Baku is intended to look like a rolled carpet. The structure, which took six years to build, has curved walls from the inside, not just the outside, which means that visitors can admire the country’s intricate textiles. SOURCE: Baku Travel Guide
