The restoration of the splendid Villa Petrolea – former residence of the Nobel Brothers in Baku was the first but not last unique ventures realized by the BNHF since then.
It also created a first outside of Sweden Home Museum of Nobel Brothers in Villa Petrolea, which has a lot of family belongings, historic items, original paintings, antiques and special gifts from the Nobel brothers’ current descendants. An international conference centre and the Baku Nobel Oil Club have found their place in Villa Petrolea as well.
The BNHF has been instrumental in support of the Branobel History Project and is committed to assist it in any possible way. In fact, the BNHF has been a patron of this project from the very beginning supporting and sponsoring events related to it.
In June 2011 the BNHF and the CBHS signed a milestone MOU that formalized the relationship between two respected organizations and laid down the framework for a future close cooperation.
