This museum, which was opened in 2004, has no analogues in the country. It was established to preserve monuments dating back to the Aggoyunlu and Garagoyunlu period (in the Middle Ages). It can also be called a museum of ram sculptures. Ram and other stone sculptures in all cemeteries of the Autonomous Republic of Nakhchivan have been savagely destroyed by people seeking gold. This museum was opened to preserve the remaining ones.
