Arrived at 10am,but on the door times said opening times 11 am,so we went for a coffee and returned just after 11 to be told the museum was closed for at least 2 months.No notice on door or any hint of closure.

I found this museum very refreshing. Most people get very judgmental while analyzing it but we do have to keep in mind the fact that it was built just eight years ago. The designers have made great efforts in giving the space a very modern...More

Checking out the Museum of Modern Art in Baku recently it was like a lot of Modern Art Museums we have visited in the past, it is bright, well laid out and the structure itself is a work of art itself. As for the exhibits,...More
