The Iraqi National Museum in Baghdad attracts visitors, both locals and foreigners, who enjoy seeing the ancient artifacts on display, from Iraq’s once-lost heritage that is now being restored.
The museum was closed for three years due to the coronavirus pandemic and political unrest, and then reopened in March of this year. It has more than 20 suites. Iraq’s ancient heritage has been severely damaged by conflict, destruction and looting, especially since 2003.
The authorities are tracing thousands of artifacts still missing to recover and preserve them.
