In 2015, with the initiative and support of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation, Tamiz Shahar OJSC established From Waste to Art Museum in the territory of the Gala State Historical and Ethnographic Reserve.


At present, the museum has about 180 different works of art. They are made of plastic water bottles, cellophane, strollers, toys, various car parts, cigarette butts, tennis balls, and other waste materials that people consider unnecessary. While visiting the museum, you can see the bird "Simurg" made of scrap metal, horses made of wooden waste, fish made of plastic spoons, forks and knives. Waste, the main raw material for these samples, was collected from various areas.


The museum draws attention not only with the artworks of local artists but also of foreign artists all around the world.
