The Bread Museum built in Azerbaijan city Aghdam, received its first visitor on November 25, 1983. During the Soviet era, the museum preserved as a monument of local culture.
In addition to the display of about 2,800 exhibits, the museum provided information about bread and bakery products, agricultural tools and their history. In the area adjacent to the museum, which has a caravanserai, there was also a cafe “Sunbul” with a tandir.
During the First Karabakh War, shells fired by the Armenian Armed Forces on August 12, 1992 destroyed the museum. Despite attempts to extinguish the fire, the museum could not be saved, and as a result, about 1,500 exhibits in the museum were destroyed by fire.
After the Second Karabakh War, the city Aghdam was liberated and on the instructions of the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan, Mr. Ilham Aliyev, began restoration work of the city, including the improvement of historical and architectural monuments.
