Azerbaijan Carpet Museum

The Azerbaijan Carpet Museum looks like a rolled up carpet. The museum was founded in 1967 and has around 10,000 carpets in its fund. The new carpet museum was opened in 2014 and designed by the Austrian architect Franz Janz. The museum shows how carpets are made and presents the most important carpets of the collection. The Baku Carpet Museum is well worth seeing because you not only see traditional patterns, but also modern motifs such as piplines, people and machines.
