  • 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!
