The Museum of Archaeology and Ethnography is located in Baku’s old city and features two exhibitions: an ethnography section displaying materials from the 19th century and 20th century showing the life of Azerbaijani people, and an archaeology section with items covering various aspects of Azerbaijanis history and culture from ancient times till the late Middle Ages. The elegant building itself is worth admiring - called Chained House, it was built in the early 20th century and belonged to a wealthy merchant, Haji Mammadhuseyn Mammadov.
