Gubadli History-Ethnography Museum

Gubadli History-Ethnography Museum was opened on May 6, 1980. Until 1993, the museum contained over 5000 exhibits. The museum pieces included ancient swords, daggers, copper utensils, pottery dishes, rare specimens of nature, fauna and flora, also the items belonging to the participants of the Great Patriotic War. There was also a separate corner for outstanding writers, scientists, culture and art figures in the museum. Their works, personal belongings were exhibited in that corner. Personal items that belonged to the folk heroes Gachag Nabi and his wife Hajar, also the paintings depicting their heroic exploits were also kept in the museum.
