While the time is counting down to the Eurovision Song Contest 2012, the host country Azerbaijan is working on the details of the contest, also preparing some surprises for their visitors, such as The Museum of Eurovision.
As is tradition, thanks to Ell & Nikki winning in 2011, the country is honoured to host the Eurovision Song Contest in 2012. Despite the speculations that are going on as to whether this small country can successfully host the contest or not, Azeri executives have already started to work on the details.
In the host city, Baku’s Work Centre, which also is expected to be the press centre at next year’s Eurovision Song Contest, has been founded a council named ‘Eurovision Centre‘ with the order of Mehriban Aliyeva (the Azeri first lady) who is also the head of the organization committee 2012. The preparations are usually co-ordinated in the council, but lately it’s started to build a section called The Museum of Eurovision at the work centre for their visitors. The museum will bring all the history related from the first Eurovision Song Contest to next year’s (2012) Eurovision Song Contest.
The constructions kicked off recently and the museum will be ready much before the contest starts. So anyone visiting the country as a Eurovision fan, no matter in the contest period or not, will be able to visit this interactive work centre, also the museum of Eurovision.
