President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev has attended the opening of a literature museum in Gazakh.

The head of state cut the ribbon symbolizing the opening of the museum.

It was noted that the improvement of museum affairs was at the center of attention in Azerbaijan. From this point of view, the order of President Ilham Aliyev dated 6 March 2007 "On the improvement of museum affairs in Azerbaijan" gave a strong impetus to important qualitative changes in the preservation of national cultural values and communication of numerous artifacts and works of art stored in museum collections to future generations. The Heydar Aliyev Foundation is also making an invaluable contribution to the development of the museum network and comprehensive improvement of museums in our country.

The three-storey museum building is located in Heydar Aliyev Avenue of Gazakh. On the first floor of it there is a conference room, a canteen and offices. The lobby of the building is decorated with portraits of prominent figures of Azerbaijani literature. The museum of writers operates on the second floor. On the third floor there are various offices and a conference room. The museum has been built using funds in the amount of 5 million manats allocated from the Contingency Fund of the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan according to a presidential decree dated 1 June 2012.
