Baku, April 11, AZERTAC
The House-Museum of Jamil Ahmadov, Hero of the Soviet Union is located in Jabrayil district. It was established in 1985, as a branch of the History and Ethnography Museum of Jabrayil district.
The Museum was constructed in the courtyard of the secondary school named after Jamil Ahmadov by the resolution of the USSR Council of Ministers. The museum covering a total area of 100 square meters consisted of three rooms. Jamil Ahmedov’s bust was put up by the well-known sculptor Omar Eldarov.
In the beginning, the museum contained about 500 exhibits, and then the number of exhibits increased to 800.
A very small number of museum pieces were handed over to the museum center in Baku a while before the occupation of the Jabrayil district by the Armed Forces of Armenia in 1993. At the present time, those exhibits are kept in the Independence Museum of Azerbaijan.
