  • Decided to get in the Gobustan alone on the bus. While travelling in a bus boy who collected money for travel, called taxi driver was already waiting for us at the bus stop. We never asked. They departed about 100 meters and taxi driver gave money to the boy for having "arrived". The price of the trip to the Museum, mud volcanoes, and back to the stop was 30 manat (had to haggle, the original price of 40 manats). From local learned that most for such a trip have to offer 15-20 manat and taxi drivers agree. You can arrange to get to the Museum from Baku and back for 30 manat.

  • It's really worthy to visit this site. As you will see on the map in the museum, there are not many places like this one around the world. The museum from its exterior doesn't looks like many things can be seen inside, but you will be surprised once you enter it.
  • Incredibly, very modern educational Museum, I recommend a visit!
