  Workshop of Ali Shamsi. Tourists, walking along Kichik Gala street, have to stop near a 90-year-old tree with three female faces, take a picture with a lion on the facade of the workshop and go through the open door to admire Ali Shamsi's paintings, talk with the master and take a picture with him as a keepsake.

Tour of the Museum (closed exposition) and the reserve (open part). The petroglyphs Museum (Museum under the open sky). Gobustan origins from the words Gobu and Stan. Thus, Gobustan is a country of ravines. Ravines there really a lot and the rivers were, but dried up, and the valley of mud volcanoes is, but the main thing is not this. The main thing in Gobustan is its famous petroglyphs. Therefore, scientists call images on a stone and consider it rudiments of writing. The age of these images is different-from the 12th century BC to the middle ages. In this area from time immemorial lived people who have left us traces of their ancient and powerful culture. There are traces of such antiquity on the globe in many places, but Gobustan is one of the unique places in both the number and preservation of such images, and in the coverage of such a large historical period. People settled in these places for thousand years– one generation after another, and each left traces of their stay.
