Abdul Raof Khalil's Museum

The heritage and glorious past of a nation is but a reflection of the civilization that had once prevailed throughout that nation. It comes from the power of its roots, nobility, the tools which were the style of life in the past, a behavior, pattern which were lived and practiced. They become now to be known as tradition, past and precious objects and antiquities. The school has substituted what was once called Alkuttab i.e. a lesson circle with one teacher and a variety of subjects or sciences. The small district was changed into a bigger one, attached rooms and houses with villas and high rise buildings. The old districts became to be known as the historical area and an old trace. From here the concept of establishing this museum come into being.
