Iraq museum safeguards artifacts

Nasiriyah Museum, the second largest museum in Iraq after the National Museum, is a facility that safeguards priceless artifacts from seven human civilizations. The museum, located near to the archaeological city of Ur, contains a huge collection of Sumerian, Assyrian, Babylonian, and Abbasid artifacts as well as other items. It was opened in 1968 and closed in 1991 due to the political and security events in Iraq. The museum re-opened its doors in 2015. (KUNA)
