What I liked was the use of modern technology to display the carpets. Some are outstanding pieces and it is centrally located.

This place only for carpet. So, if you are a lover for carpets visit this place, because in Heydar Aliyev Cultural Center you will see carpets and some detail about it. So don't waste your time and money in this museum except if you are carpet lover.

During our last day in Baku, we were running out of stuff to do, so we visited this carpet museum, not knowing what to expect. Very informative and not a bad way to kill an hour or two.
