The National museum of Azerbaijan literature named after Nizami Ganjavi (Azerbaijani: Nizami Gəncəvi adına Milli Azərbaycan ədəbiyyatı muzeyi) is a museum in Baku, established in 1939. It is located near the entrance of Icheri Sheher, not far from the Fountains Square. The museum is considered one of the greatest and richest treasuries of Azerbaijani culture.
A great tribute to Great PERSIAN poet & writer I do believe he never wrote a single line or verse in Turkish and as a teacher of history my sources of information which are global and very credible, tell me that Nizami was in fact Persian and only wrote in Persian I asked a guide about this and I do believe he swore at me in his language
Honoring the great poets of the land.
Beautiful exterior. We entered through the wrong door initially, were then redirected. After walking through a metal detector manned by a guard preoccupied with his phone, the coat check stopped us, as that is where we were to buy our tickets. I asked for our tickets in Russian, they had told us they cost 7 monat each. After handing over a 20 note, they asked for our nationality. We had told them we are American, at which point they had upcharged us 10 monat each. After unhappily agreeing to the price, they had asked us to cover our shoes with plastic booties, surrender our hand bags, as well as given instructions on our mobile phone usage. I became annoyed by the upsale then being ordered around on petty matters before seeing anything, so I asked for a refund, to which they obliged. I had heard wonderful things about Azeri literature and hoped to learn more at this museum. Nothing more than a curiosity for my education. Unfortunately, I was greeted with an upcharge and a string of commands at the door.
Based on my conversation with local people, it's more in literature of locals, Anyway outside is beautiful.

It is a beautiful country but we are beginning to see the exploitation of the Arab tourist in the restaurants and the request of tip from everywhere, and this bothers us and makes us not visit Azerbaijan
Great place for literature & history lovers..
Hi Bilal are you still there bro?
My favorite museum in Baku. The guides are professional and friendly.
