Miniature Books, Baku
(4.4/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
See the charming collection of Miniature Books, a museum that displays thousands of tiny books from different parts of the world. Open since 2002, the museum was established by Zarifa Salahova, who had collected miniature publications for years. Admire a large variety of miniscule books divided into a range of themes, from Soviet and Azerbaijani classics to international masterpieces. All of them are readable, although you might need a magnifying glass for the especially small specimens. Highlights of the museum include a 13th-century edition, as well as astoundingly small works that measure just 2 mm (0.08 in) in length and width. Arrange to visit Miniature Books and other attractions in Baku using our Baku travel itinerary maker.

  • In this museum you can see the biggest quantity of minuscule books. And a lot of them are very famous in every language 
  • In the old town of Bakü a small but must visit museum for tourists. Miniature small books are collected from the history of Azerbaijan. 
  • The Museum is a private collection of miniature books with very interesting exhibits. Admission is free, and the museum itself is small, but very nice. Museum curator or can guide enthusiastically responds to any questions, you can see that she really likes and is proud of its work and the Museum. Really enjoyed
