1/5 based on 20+ reviews on the web
Museum of Folk and Applied Arts holds a collection of mostly 18th and 19th centuries artifacts. The museum's stern exterior reveals an unusual architectural plan that features a central domed rotunda completed with three arms of the Greek cross. As you enter, you will see some old photos and displays of pottery, jewelry, folk costumes, and silk embroideries. Look for the 18th-century gun that was used in the rebellion against one of the most powerful Persian shahs. The museum includes a souvenir shop selling silk scarves, woven knapsacks, and other knick-knacks.

  • Visited the Museum during an excursion in Sheki in January 2016 onwards. At that time I rested and treated in naftalan, and excursion was organized by hotel Chinar. While visiting the Museum managed to get acquainted with the history of the city of craftsmen, get information about the life and lifestyle of SHAKI for hundreds of years, see authentic artifacts and utensil. Quite informative, I want to say. At the exit of their mkzeâ bought a beautiful scarf from Sheki silk, so I remained material memory:)
