The Azerbaijan Carpet Museum is dedicated to the art of carpet weaving.

The Azerbaijan Carpet Museum rolled out its best carpets starting in 2017.

The country's national symbol is the carpet, and the carpet-shaped museum celebrates the folk art heritage. The rugs are typically made from natural pieces like lamb or sheep's wool and dyed with natural dyes.

The building was designed by Franz Janz and inside the curved walls display collections of carpets and carpet products like bags, valises and pillowcases. The space is home to demonstrations of local carpet weaving techniques and carpets aren't the only thing on display. Browse galleries of ceramics, metal works, national garments and artifacts that date back to the Bronze Age.
