The architecture of the museum is definitely one of a kind. However, the collection of carpets was little, in my opinion.

There were many variety of carpets and old dresses that depicts culture of Azerbaijan. The exterior is unique and nice. In nutshell, average if you are not an arts and craft enthusiast.

the carpet exhibits are over two floors, and worth a visit. after here, proceed to the funicular station across the street to visit highland park

other surrounding sites like mini venice etc are not worth the time.

Very good place that is very rich with history & culture. In one hour you can get to know the Azerbaijani history through crafting their carpets. A must visit place.

It is what it says. A museum on the culture and traditions of carpet making in Azerbaijan. Also covers traditional embroidery.

Came for the cool exterior design. Not a carpet enthusiast but I still decided to check the museum out.
Ticket cost 10 Manat each.

Museum has 3 levels. Main exhibition is at 2nd and 3rd level. There were Azerbaijani and English explanations. Carpets showcased were nice, and some have cool designs considering it was handknotted. But after a while it gets repetitive for me.

There's a museum gift shop where different type of souvenirs, even non carpet theme, were sold. Suggestion: maybe have more Carpet Museum specific magnets and postcards

Located in Baku's seafront park, it is clear that the building represents a half-rolled carpet. Designed by an Austrian architect, it is interesting (if only in a Disney-like sense).

A building that, at a distance, appears to be an actual carpet! And then inside some of the world’s most beautiful hand knotted silk and wool masterpieces.
