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

The Carpet Museum is housed in a stylish carpet shaped building in a park by the waterfront, and with an excellent view of the city skyline. 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

She showed us around the place over an hour and half which went by very quickly. The museum has collection of carpet from 17th century and some very interesting designs and patterns from different parts of Azerbaijan. The... More

The Carpet Museum building itself is already an attraction -- the roof line is in the shape of a rolled up carpet. The interior of the building is also very well designed to display a wonderful collection of carpets ranging from the very traditional to impressive modern designs. And the gift shop is interesting too.
