I have only passed near this Museum from outside, which is very nice, and my driver said that from top, the shape of it is made from the Signature of 1st President. As I'll return in May one again, I'll make sure to get inside and have some good time inside.

Architect Zaha Hadid has described her Heydar Aliyev Center in Baku, Azerbaijan as an "incredible achievement". Masterpiece by the legendary Zaha Hadid. No further description needed.

There are two types of tickets, classic cars and museum go for Museum as classic cars are 3 only of their presidents. Dolls Museum is not what you think it's must to see, architecture , Music , president belongings and state gifts etc displayed.

This Zaha Hadid design of the building is the reason to visit it. You realize how genius she was. Oval white share of the structure, endless prospective, unusual forms make you feel like you are in space. Must be seen.

The building itself is Zaha Hadid masterpiece . The construction follows the design and even when you approach it you can't see any fault. There are museums inside worth visiting in order to understand country history and presence better
