a building like white waves that make you float, a liquid vision with no borders. To go inside you need to buy a ticket for one of the museum but you do not haveaccess to the orchestra hall. A pity

This building is gorgeous, adventurous and multifaceted not only from the outside but also from the inside! If you know Zaha Hadid you will definitely enjoy this building as she is a futuristic and outstanding architect.
Amazing how every perspective on the building looks like a different building. What is remarkable is that the structures of white waves is continued inside in form of different levels, the staircase or to separate different exhibitions that are hosted inside.
During my visit they had 3 current exhibitions: The Heydar Aliyev's life exhibition, carpet exhibition and one that displayed miniature buildings that are build and planned in Baku as well a very nice cultural exhibition.
The futuristic style of the building is even reflected in the small cafe. You can order your refreshments over the iPad that ly at the white bar.
Well worth a visit!
If you come by Metro I would recommend to leave the same way you came because it was just insane/impossible to cross the street at the front of the building.
