June is too hot here and this place maybe needs a roof

The heat was a bit harsh, and the animals in the back are taken well care of. The artifacts is damaged by the sun - can be more well protected.

Interesting especially the art museum where are exhibiting displays of recycled materials.

The complex itself is less than a hour’s drive from Baku,and includes three separate museums.One is the Ethnographic Museum a kind of open air museum,the second is a Museum of Antiques, and the third is Castle Museum.
Based on our tour guide recommendations we visited only the Ethnographic Museum.Entry fee just for this museum is 10 Manat.The place is quite good organized and allows to the visitors seeing different layers of how rural Azerbaijan people lived in past.You’ll need to see all about 30-40 minutes.
Near the complex is a unique art museum who probably is not belonging to the complex but just to see this museum ,is worth coming here.The entry to this wonderful museum is free of charge.The museum has two floors where artworks made of recycled materials are displayed.(see below)

Actual a pretty interesting place to visit
Sep 2017 • Family
This was a last minute surprise local guests took us to. It had and interesting antique museum that had large Samovar collection. We went and we're only ones there so lights weren't turned on, but very interesting. Had some carriages, older belt ware, coins etc. the next site was the archeology site of old settlement, that's another ticket. Was interesting and fun to walk through and see the mix of site plus restoration, displays of life in settlement. Also had some animals there's and camels. Third attraction was a small castle to go in, walk up to top wall and view small village from high ground. Happy I went, but if you are limited on time it takes about 45 minutes from old city and might not be everyone's cup of tea. Interesting, but not a must if time is limited

Much ado!

A place which was very hard to access. The only interesting things were the museums, but you can find many of them in Baku. If you go on a cold day it might be fine but going to out of city attractions is not advisable on hot days.

We stopped here as part of a tour. It was okay. We went through one of the towers. There's a bit of history, but I found it underwhelming. The museum had some beautiful pieces, but I could have lived without going here.

Lovely Place
Nov 2016 • Friends
Really enjoyed our trip to Qatar. It's a beautifully restored and nanichred site. Some say too much so but we really enjoyed it nonetheless. Plenty to see and do with English displays accompanying most exhibits. Loved the fortress.
Wish we had longer but darkness was falling and we had to go, but cheap at the price and only a short 30ish minute taxi ride from central Baku.

Actually quite difficult to find,not very well signposted,a shame as it was very interesting and you really could imagine living centuries ago.Much to see.Seperate fee for the museum which holds many ornate samovars (urns), table lamps and weighing scales,quite a collection.Again separate fee to visit the castle which the grandchildren really enjoyed.Fantastic view from the top.

Underwhelming
Aug 2016 • Solo
This is a weird place - everything is re-created and a replica apart from a few real things in a tiny museum.

It is a reasonably large site, well laid out and maintained, with "fake" petroglyphs in the gardens, couple of buildings whose interiors represent how the people used to live and then some animals including rabbits, sheep, horses and about 10 camels in stables at the back.

I really didn't know what to make of this place. Not sure I can recommend it.

Worth to visit in spring
Mar 2016 • Family
A good historical place full of art and color . It takes almost 2 hours to see the 3 museums at a time. You will find lots of traditional home amenities, clothing, art paintings, camel houses and etc. from around the all old villages of Azerbaijan and there is a live show that performed by guides of the museum. It's a different experience and highly recommended. But keep in your my that you will be exhausted if you visit in summer, the best time is to visit during Nowruz holidays.(March 21-25th).

worth a visit

As a fan of historical places I liked it, any way it was not interesting for my family.
The place is well organized and have some interesting stuff .
Any way it is better to come here by a taxi and keep the car waiting since it is a bit long distance from the main road to the site gate (at least the gate we used to get in)
