- What’s On
The pioneer carpet museum dates from 1967 and is one of the most important textile museums in the world. In 2014 a new building shaped like a rolled-up carpet opened at the Seaside National Park, designed by Austrian architect Franz Janz. It has more than 10,000 items of ceramics, metal works of the 14th century, jewellery from the Bronze Age, carpets and carpet items from the 17th–20th centuries, national garments and embroidery, and modern applied art. The museum organizes public lectures and study courses and is engaged in research. The museum also holds a collection from the Museum of History in Susha, saved by its director who moved out 600 carpets before it was looted by Armenian troops. In 2010 Azerbaijani carpets were proclaimed “a Masterpiece of Intangible Heritage” by UNESCO
