In the early 20th century, Baku briefly became the world’s biggest petroleum producing area creating a string of local millionaires remembered by historians as ‘oil barons’. These folks built grand mansions including this one. Today it displays a very rich collection that offers fascinating insights into Azerbaijani history, but even for those with little interest in the history, seeing the brilliantly restored ‘Oriental Room’ in all its exotic opulence, is likely to be worth the ticket price on its own.
