Museums in Azerbaijan | Muzeylər

Main Museums in Baku

In the years following independence, a lot of attention has been poured on the museums by the government, mainly as a way of weaving and reinforcing national identity. Museums serving the Soviet ideology are now themselves part of history. E.g. the Lenin museum now houses the magnificent collection of the Museum of Carpet-Making and Folk Crafts, previously located at the Djuma Mosque in the Old Town. Sign of the times!

Azerbaijan also has a tradition of "house museums", the former houses of the famous and powerful now open to the occasional visitor and mainly of interest to the researcher with a specific interest. Some house museums host interesting event but most tend to be rather dull and repetitive, on the other hand most are free.

Genocide Memorial to be erected in mass burial site in Guba through Heydar Aliyev Foundation’s assistance

Genocide Memorial will be erected in a mass burial site in Azerbaijan’s Guba region through Heydar Aliyev Foundation’s assistance, the Foundation said in a statement.

The memorial will be dedicated to the memory of tens of thousands of victims of ethnic cleansing and aggression perpetrated by Armenian Dashnak gangs in Azerbaijani lands in early 21st century.

Most tragic genocide of the 21st century was carried out in many regions of Azerbaijan. As a result, tens of thousands of people became victims of Armenian atrocities and refugees in their own lands with many settlements razed to the ground.

Guba town and its surrounding villages also suffered the genocide. Some 122 villages were completely destroyed during the genocide carried out in the province of Guba in April-May, 1918. Along with Azerbaijanis killed with extreme cruelty during the bloody genocide, thousands of Lezghins, Jews and representatives of other nationalities were exposed to violence.

Victims of this bloody genocide have been buried in the mass burial site in Guba.

Memorial to genocide victims will be erected with a view to inform the world of criminal acts of Armenian nationalists, perpetuate memory of genocide victims and to protect national memory.

The task force established with the support of Heydar Aliyev Foundation includes specialists who work on sketches of the memorial on the basis of international experience in this field.

About Baku Oil Museum

Baku Oil Museum composed as a result of the conceptual project competition opened by State Oil Company of Azerbaijan and one of the 4 concepts offered by TOCA named “The Liquid” became the winner.

The Project consists of the amorphous cover structure representing liquidity of oil and the Azerbaijan soil swelling on the “black gold”. 8 thematic parks as projected for the museum are placed sequentially around the pond representing the Caspian Sea. Current site is proposed to be rehabilitated to turn into a landscape with a green and new topography. The Caspian Pond and the building of Oil Museum is placed in actual North-South axis according to Azerbaijan’s actual geographical situation. A 50m watch tower is proposed to be placed on the South-West end of Caspian Pond as a dialectical answer to the amorphous cover of the Museum building and to generate a symbolic monument for Baku silhouette. Circular block of the restaurant escalates to the peak becoming the observation tower at the same time, allowing visitors to perceive map of Azerbaijan shaping the Oil museum building.

Oil Museum is using and at the same time exhibiting alternative energy resources while accommodating Azerbaijan’s history over oil. Structure of the cover resembling the map of Azerbaijan is formed of photovoltaic panels, which will reduce the energy consumption of the museum. Wind turbines placed on the site of the museum are not only using the wind potential of Baku but also suggesting more sustainable world and and reflecting the “Zeitgeist” besides the history exhibited.

Oil Museum has a footprint of 7000 sqm and accomodating a 10000 sqm with a program of temporary and permanent exhibition halls, administration areas, workshop halls, research center, cinemas, child museum, library, archive, museum shops and storage areas. Parks representing the different periods of oil history are proposed to be placed around Caspian Pond consisting of 7 theme parks, 1 production park, 2 parking areas and 2 cafes.

Why is a new contemporary arts museum being built? The current one (opened less than a year ago on Zarifa Aliyeva St) is absolutely stunning. It has superb design, lighting and art and would still be "cool" and "cutting edge" even if it was based in London, New York or Milan. The exterior building itself is nothing special (the bottom two floors of a new residential block) but the interior is superb.

I totally agree with you. Baku has a great contemporary art museum which is worth to be visited. I have been already 3 times there and it really makes me feel proud to watch very nice works of our artists as well as stare at masterpieces of Picasso and Salvador Dali.

As for the latest contemporary art museum renders we see here, it is just a concept plan had been issued in 2006 which later has not been approved. As far as I know, a new building for contemporary art museum in Baku is not on agenda for today

It is located on the firwst two floors of a residential building on Yusif Safarov street. It is hard not to notice it since there are many contemporary art statues in front of the building. Believe me it is a great place to visit which costs only 5 AZN for adults, 2 AZN for students and free for children.
