Well-presented exhibits on Azerbaijan’s history and culture might miss the odd century here and there, but there’s more than enough to fill several hours if you’re really interested. If not, it’s still worth a brief trot through to admire the building – an opulent 1896 mansion. Its dazzling neo-Moorish ‘Oriental Hall’, along with some attached apartments, form a submuseum (no extra charge) honouring HZ Tağiyev, one of Baku’s greatest late-19th-century oil barons for whom the house was built.
