Museum of Modern Art reviews
Only come here if u have seen everything and have NOTHING to do. Even then, only come if i really care about modern art. Its only 5 manat and thats all its worth more »
This gallery could really benefit from some curating. The interior design and the amount of art scattered throughout creates a feeling of incredible of clutter. more »
WORTH VISITING: impressive architecture with nice decoration. Exposition is not world-class, but really interesting considering the diversity of art options in the town.
Super place to get to know local Azeri contemporary artists. Huge space so you can spend the afternoon there!
