Brief description: Being a well-known scientist, teacher, bright publicist and playwright, Uzeir Hajibeyov is a classic of the Azerbaijan music, with whose name foundation and formation of the national composer school is connected. Consisting both of the personal belongings and exhibits telling about Hajibeyov's creative work, the museum exposition acquaints the visitors with the brightest pages of life and creative work of the composer. Here everything is kept in its original place, where it used to be during his lifetime. The score of the unfinished "Azerbaijan" symphonic poem is still lying on his writing-table. The exposition tells about composer's works beginning with "Leili and Majnun", which is considered to be the first opera in the Middle East, up to classic "Ker-Oghlu". Important documents and state awards of the composer are displaying in the museum exposition as well.
