This museum, dedicated to Jalil Mammadguluzade, was established in 1994 on the 125th birth anniversary of the great man. More than 4000 pieces related to his personal and creative life are displayed here. The museum was established in the 5 roomed house where he lived from 1922 till 1932. Jalil Mammadguluzade was a writer, publicist and a teacher. Each room in the house is dedicated to a different part of his life. Thus everything from his childhood till death, from his writings to illustrations, from his family photos to reading material are presented here. Mamadkuluzade was the creator of the first satirical magazine of Azerbaijan called "Molla Nasreddin". The main purpose of this magazine was to ridicule the negative social norms using a funny cleric called Molla Nasreddin . He urged the readers to modernise and bring an end to inequality, corruption, backwardness and religious fanaticism. "Molla Nasreddin" was an integral part of his life and he was its editor for 25 years.
