  • The architecture is simply amazing. It's like staring at something from the future. The inside has a lot of history for Heydar Aliyev's life, including his impressive car collection. I got there...

  • Incredible exterior and interior. Worth a visit! Everything is perfect, but the only negative aspect is the entrance. The escalators don’t work which is a big problem, because the distance is very long and it was very hot outside. It wasn’t clear which door you should enter to buy tickets. Ticket prices are reasonable. Would have preferred more activities inside for children for example. Also, there should be Arabic translations as there are many Arab visitors.
  • It’s a different museum. The building is amazing masterpiece. Don’t forget to buy extra ticket to visit classic cars if you are interested in cars. You need a half day to visit this amazing center with full concentration for every single thing.
  • When you look at the structure and material from out side you will understand what lays beneath it. Its just wow! One of the greatest place i visited my whole life. Me and my wife, we are artists and we enjoy art so much. We visited there 2 days in a row. All the thing we saw was gorgeous in their own way. I really recommend every one to visit this place. Its a must see building from both inside and out.
  • Very attractive charming place, astonishing. Once you look at it you find it difficult to move your eyes. Thee way they built it is amazing
  • Very nice place to spend a day exploring the history. In a very modern way. I enjoyed the tour and the design of the place is so amazing.
