The Iraqi National Museum, first established in 1923, has been hosted at its present location since the building inauguration in 1966. Built to international standards, the National Museum has become the centerpiece for showcasing Iraq’s rich cultural heritage to both researchers and the public alike.
It has thus been a tragedy that the museum will be forever remembered for the shameful looting of 10-12 April 2003, but this event nonetheless galvanized national and international efforts to restore both the museum and its priceless collection of artifacts. Restoration of the museum premises and exhibition halls has been supported by Japan, Italy and the U.S.A. and UNESCO; while the effort to recover stolen artifacts continues, the museum now boasts a laboratory, supported by these same countries and UNESCO,
which is able to maintain and repair damaged artifacts.
