Nizami Museum of Literature

Between the old city and Fountains Square (the heart of modern Baki) is this striking building...I think it is the Nizami Museum of Literature, named after the Azeri poet Nizami, but i never went inside...the statues show Azerbaijan's leading literary figures, although I haven't got a clue who they are! (Maybe Natik could help me out there?!)
