  • Between the lifelike wax figures, you occasionally have to take a close look at who visitors and what exhibits are. Especially nice: Towards the end the photo exhibition of the old Baghdad and the gallery of the mayors of Baghdad.

  • The National Museum of Iraq (المتحف العراقي) is a museum located in Baghdad, Iraq. Also known as the Iraq Museum, it contains precious relics from the Mesopotamian, Babylonian and Persian civilization. It was looted during and after the 2003 Invasion of Iraq. Despite international efforts, only some of the stolen artifacts were returned. After being closed for many years while being refurbished, and rarely open for public viewing, the museum is reopened
  • Good musuem and one of the best available musuem in Baghdad, it's all about the traditional of Baghdad people's life and the culture of city. The museum operation hours from 10-2 pm during during the week except Tuesday and Saturday where the museum is closed, unlike the operation hours where is wrongly advertised in the official site so make sure to arrive at least 12:30 pm to be able to see the entire museum.
  • A suficeticated old style Iraqi building that contains Images of the traditional iraqis live Baghdad. It contains different scenarios of daily peoples lives from marketing to celebrations and family gatherings with some fun situation that people may incounter. I highly recommend visiting it.
  • So much room for improvement. English translation on signs is very poor. Toilets are in very bad state. Could benefit from a nice gift shop.
  • Represent the old culture and people in Baghdad. Nice experience that you can spend a couple of hours enjoying it , finish it with a tour in the river.
