The Iraq Museum, Baghdad

(4.3/5 based on 45+ reviews on the web)
The largest museum in the country, The Iraq Museum displays innumerable artifacts dating back to ancient Mesopotamia. Across 28 rooms and galleries, the exhibits showcase the development of the people and cutures in this territory, from 10,000 years ago to today. The museum was looted in 2003, when over 500,000 artifacts were plundered, and the site was partially demolished. However, with the help of UNESCO, most of the exhibits were returned, and, after a long renovation, the museum reopened in 2015. Now you can visit and see everything from hunting tools to statues, legal documents, paintings, and much more.

  • I consider myself really lucky to have visited this amazing museum. It contains thousands of years of history. I could barely stand up by the end of the tour. We had a rest at the cafeteria and I bought myself a souvenir from the gift shop. Would definitely go back.
  • It has many things regarding the Iraqi history since the Sumerian , Babylon to Islamic early history
