Beautiful museum representative of Iraqi people in Iraq and around the world. It reminds you of why you are proud to come from such a beautiful country like no other.
One of the historical museums, it gives you an idea about life in old Baghdad and professions in it. It contains a lot of statues to mimic the lifestyle of last century. Its location is not hard to find and you can park your car in nearby parking building. No nearby high class restaurants. But you can take a good tour in old markets. If you are planning to do a historical tour, then I prefer to take public transportation or taxis. Do not forget to visit mutanabi's street and try grapes juice from "zibala".
