Beautiful museum representative of Iraqi people in Iraq and around the world. It reminds you of why you are proud to come from such a beautiful country like no other.
One of the historical museums, it gives you an idea about life in old Baghdad and professions in it. It contains a lot of statues to mimic the lifestyle of last century. Its location is not hard to find and you can park your car in nearby parking building. No nearby high class restaurants. But you can take a good tour in old markets. If you are planning to do a historical tour, then I prefer to take public transportation or taxis. Do not forget to visit mutanabi's street and try grapes juice from "zibala".
Good place to see how old Baghdadi people lived
The Baghdadi Museum documents a period of Baghdad's history, details the lives of Baghdadi, and sheds light on Baghdadi's heritage and the traditional lifestyle of old Baghdad. It regains the simplicity, cohesion and social richness of life through realistic scenes embodying the shape, movement and colors created by Iraqi artists who made the statues of characters in a language related to the folklore and heritage of ancient Baghdadi society.
Great place to visit and discover old baghdad way of living. Very interesting
