Iraq National Museum Set to Reopen

Posted By Administration, Thursday, January 13, 2011
Updated: Tuesday, December 17, 2013

Though security is tight and tension remains high, reopening is sign of a return to normalcy.

Assyrin and Islamic exhibitions have been reinstalled and sections of the museum have been open to a limited public- available to VIP's and invited guests only- since 2008. Since its creation the museum has seldom had its doors open. Closures for the Gulf War through April 2000 and again in 2002 prior to another wave of invasion. Museum Director, Amira Edan, enthusiastically awaits official reopening this March.
