Azerbaijan State Museum of Musical Culture – I stumbled upon it.

Azerbaijan State Museum of Musical Culture –  I stumbled upon it. I stumbled upon this small musuem almost immediately after I arrived in Baku. It looked interesting and I am always up for a good museum (or even an occassional bad one). This museum had a comforting in between feel to it.
