The house of Mir Mohsun Navvab, a prominent Azerbaijani poet, artist, calligrapher and musicologist, located in the historic Mamayi neighborhood of Shusha, was one of the architectural examples of the 19th century. In 1990, the house-museum of Mir Mohsun Navvab was opened here.
Exhibits about the life and work of Mir Mohsun Navvab were displayed in the museum. Among them were his typewriter, telescope, paintings drawn by him and items proving his printing activity.
As a result of the occupation of Shusha by the Armenian Armed Forces, the museum building and exhibits were destroyed.
