VIRTUAL MUSEUM OF IRAQ

Virtual Museum of Iraq

 Italy honors Iraq as the birthplace of civilization through a virtual museum featuring 70 of the antiquities on display at the Iraq National Museum in Baghdad. The multimedia exhibit was developed by Italy’s Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (National Research Council) with support from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Presented in Italian, English and Arabic, the virtual museum contains images, movies, maps and timelines in seven different halls designed to be explored. The Virtual Museum does not aim to reproduce the original structure and set up of the real museum, it is a communication project built to know the principal stages of historical and cultural development of Mesopotamia through archeological artifacts and sites. Interactive functions and various user format are combined into a user-friendly interface in order to make the Virtual Museum of Iraq an instrument to explore, to know and to preserve Iraq cultural heritage despite of war and violence. Developed by CNR
