  • Between the lifelike wax figures, you occasionally have to take a close look at who visitors and what exhibits are. Especially nice: Towards the end the photo exhibition of the old Baghdad and the gallery of the mayors of Baghdad.

Also known as the Iraq Museum, it contains precious relics from the Mesopotamian, Babylonian and Persian civilization. It was looted during and after the 2003 Invasion of Iraq. Despite international efforts, only some of the stolen artifacts were returned. After being closed for many years while being refurbished, and rarely open for public viewing, the museum is reopened
