The Iraqis say that few countries in the world are as rich in archaeology as Iraq.
The Iraq Museum, for example, with its great well-organized and carefully labeled collection of archaeological finds is a reflection of this richness.
A record of the many peoples and cultures which flourished in Mesopotamia from time immemorial up to the centuries of the Arab empire, the Museum offers a vivid display of pre-historic remains, of the civilizations and arts of the Sumerians, Akkadians, Babylonians, Assyrians, Chaldeans, Seleucids, Parthians, Sas-sanians, and Abbassids.
The display halls are chronologically arranged in this order.
For the benefit of scholars, the Museum has a rich multilingual library, which adds to the prestige of the Iraq Museum as one of the best in the world of Mesopotamian studies.
