We went not in this museum because the entry was 7 manat per person which was too much for us. So only go there if you are really interested in carpets..😋

This unique, stunning building designed like a rolled carpet, silver with traditional designs in soft golden brown on the outside and stark white inside to best show its fabulous display of richly coloured carpets over three floors on the curved walls, is a must-see for both the architecture and the carpets. The signage is excellent - all you need to... More

Very much enjoyed a short visit here - have all the carpets I need, but just spending time talking with the folks I learned a lot about the technique for weaving and the rationale for some of the patterns. Interesting

Displays inside are imaginatively displayed and there's plenty of natural lighting. The building architecture makes it a very good display venue for seeing the wealth of the craft. There are also displays of carpet... More
