Nizami Museum of Literature, Baku

(4/5 based on 35+ reviews on the web)
Appreciate great written works of the Azeri culture at Nizami Museum of Literature, a lovely three-story building housing over 3,000 manuscripts, rare books, illustrations and miniatures arranged across 40 halls in downtown Baku. Opened in 1939, the museum features an elegant façade with six pointed arches above six sculptures of poets and writers. Each major poet has a hall inside the museum, displaying memories, sculptures, portraits, and other regalia. Outside the museum, a well-kept garden with terraced pools and fountains provides a nice place to rest from the city’s bustle. Named after a 12th-century Persian Sunni poet, Nizami Ganjavi, the museum also has a book shop where you can buy souvenirs.
