I should have checked reviews about this place before going in. I was told to come in at the entrance and then demanded 2 AZN. One of the women was following me, not to offer explanation but to watch me? It was just a collection...More

One quick look is enough..only sections of Shebeke art of glass inlaying and of the musical instruments was worth it...the craftsman himself was present.. awesome laborious work...and hence very expensive . In sheki many homes have windows in Shebeke art work...the tradition should continue..

Well only the taxidermy was good, the stuffed animals are in such state it's a laugh. For the rest there are some old Lenin posters which can be found in any flea market and Nagorno Karabakh propaganda and some personal belongings of martyrs died it...More

This building has about 10-15 stalls showcasing handicrafts ranging from silk scarves, earrings, jewellery and most interestingly a workshop for the wood and glass work that Sheki is famous for. They create huge window panes with coloured glass and the wooden frame does not have...More

This is actually just a collection of souvenir stalls, rather than a museum, although the arts and crafts are very interesting.

This review is quite late. The Museum of Folk and Applied Arts is more of a place for buying souvenir items. Nothing much to see so you can give this a miss.

The heading of this article is rather confusing as nobody in Sheki seems to know where a Museum of Folk and Applied Arts on Steny Naryngala St is (not on google maps either). The sign on a museum at the Xans palace compound in Sheki...More

Interesting place from the outside, looking much like a church. Inside mainly a collection of local artefacts and photos from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, some more interesting than others. Many items labelled in English but like many provincial museums in this part of the...More

The entrance fee is 2 AZN. That's not too much but next to this building there is a Shaki Khan Palace that is also 2 AZN and much more interesting from this place. It makes me to think that this museum doesn't deserve that money....More

The building looks intriguing from outside - a circular former church - but it's hard to see why one would pay AZN2 to see the scrappy bits and bobs inside. Then again, I guess it's a token fee and helps keep the place open and...More
