Stunning piece of architecture. One of the most impressive modern buildings I've ever seen. Jut go and see it for yourself and make sure to check it out from all angles, as no view is the same. You can take a metro and walk the rest, a pleasant stroll through a park and then a few city blocks. We didn't... More

For sure it's worth a look and a few photos from various angles outside. Inside on display were some metal sculptures, miniature buildings of Baku, some culture items of Azerbaijan, life of former president, and collection of dolls (perhaps most unique of all). 15 manat is too much for what is offered.

This building is near to nariman narimanov metro. And from there you need to walk for about 10 minutes. It is a nice and very modern building. It's so huge and impressive architecture as well. The entrance is 15AZN for all exhibition and 10AZN if you want to see only car exhibition. There is park in front of the building... More

This place you have to see! You also have to go INSIDE, outside just doesn't do it justice. This is a wonder of the world for sure. Its 15 Manat to get in. There is also a collection of old cars in basement 3 - another 10 Manat will get you in there....worth seeing if you are into cars. Give... More

Full disclosure: I visited this place with an architect, so I had a bit of inside knowledge before visiting. The design and the scale of this building are impressive. Take some time to walk all around and admire it before you go inside. This is a magnificent work by starchitect Zaha Hadid (RIP). The center is part museum, with some... More

This Zaha Hadid building is truly magnificent - not only when you see it from the outside, but also when you are inside of it. The expositions inside are all very nicely designed with perfect taste
