National Museum of Iraq on Google Maps



Baghdad, Irag - Opened in 1926 the National Museum of Iraq contains precious relics from Mesopotamian civilization, its collections amongst the most important in the world. It contains important artifacts from the over 5,000 year long history of Mesopotamia in 28 galleries and vaults.

The National Museum of Iraq, reopened to the public since March 2011, can now be explored with Google Street View. A team from Google took photographs from within the museum using Street View technology and specialized equipment for detail views of the artifacts. This was the company's first ever effort to photo-document the interior collection of an arts institution.
