The National Museum of Turkmen Carpet welcomed young visitors from the Turkmen-Russian secondary school named after Pushkin. The schoolchildren were told about the history of Turkmen carpets by their guide A. Bayriyeva. Children could learn many interesting facts about peculiarities of Turkmen carpets and even get acquainted with the process of weaving, touch the material and ask questions.
The tour began with a story about the history of Turkmen carpet. The schoolchildren were shown authentic samples of Turkmen carpet weaving of the 19th-20th centuries. Then the students saw real masterpieces of the museum collection in the form of three large carpets made at different times, which are of great cultural, historical and artistic value.
The carpet "Turkmen Destiny" dates back to 1941 and is the true pride of the museum. The carpet "Golden Age" with an area of 301 square meters is included in the Guinness Book of Records. The third big rug was woven relatively recently, in 2009, to coincide with the opening of the new museum building.
