National Iraq Museum Reviews & Ratings

  • Such a great place to visit. I spent an ages reading about Mesopotamia and Sumerian. Today I was in this museum and shocked with content in it. Such great species from 100000 B.C collection presented in this place. It gives you such clear and rich content about the past with evidence from Iraq Mesopotamia, Red Sea and Iraq historical events. I do recommend this place for all to visit it’s worth it.

  • Amazing experience to go through on Baghdad, however there's little care of the place and halls, often you see visitors touching the antiques without any supervision, children yelling and carelessly running around the halls But the historical value is amazing and a must visit if you are in Baghdad Keep in mind that there are a lot of sections/halls, so it may take you more than one visit to fully experience the museum

  • Enjoyed every little thing about our great history I would love to go there again and visit it

  • Nothing spectacular and they’ll take and keep your smokes. Unfortunately Mesopotamia’s museum is not what it should be, but there was one friendly person from three people I encountered.

  • What a wonderful museum . The best museum I have been to for ages. Treasures of a mankind, all these Mesopotamian, Babylonian and Persian civilization ever read in the historical book only and now here I am, so personal and fascinating. truly helpfull to understand and learn from the past. Historically speaking, wow.... Amazing
