Worth an hour of anybody's time. We went when it opened and were soon followed by numerous guided tours. The museum offer their own guides and from unintentional eavesdropping they are interesting and well informed. Excellent display of carpets from all regions of Azerbaijan although it gets a bit confusing trying to distinguish the differences between villages etc. If you've ever considered buying a handmade rug and been put off by the price, an insight into how much labour goes in to one goes a long way to explain it.

Not so much a carpet museum as another tribute to President Aliyev, the founder of modern Azerbiijan. Ask about the connection between Azeri carpets and Persian carpets.

An interesting museum presenting a collection of different carpets/rugs from all over Azerbaijan. Also, there is a local workshop to show you how they were made and traditional music instruments

This is the first carpet museum I've visited anywhere. The museum has an interesting collection of carpets (as well as pots and dresses) and gets better as you go to higher floors. The exhibits are named, but are missing descriptions (perhaps the audio guides provide explanations). However, what mars an otherwise nice experience is the unpleasant staff behaviour and their lack of professionalism. There are so many of them, but none can answer questions or provide useful information. Two of them just went back to checking their phones after saying "we can't help you" instead of trying to find an answer. What's worse is that many times, someone would follow me like a leech to make sure I'm not doing anything wrong (this is the case with most museums and palaces in Azerbaijan I visited).

The building itself with a special architecture - representing a rolled carpet, is impressive.
The museum itself has a very impressive collection of carpets; a traditional Azerbaijani art
There are also women who weave carpets (live) inside the museum.
