Aleppo Things to Do: 247 reviews and 615 photos
Sorry, you might as well forget it. This has been looted as have the sites I visited during this tragic civil war
Many of these pieces came from sites that can be visited. For example, if one goes out to the Ain Dara, Aramaic/Hittite temple in the Dead Cities region, one will notice that the best pieces have been wisely moved to the Aleppo Museum. Therefore, it's a good idea to see both the archeological dig and the museum to piece together a finer understanding of these ancient cultures. Incidentally, as an update to museum policies, it appears that photography is tolerated, but no flash is allowed. It's a relaxed atmosphere nevertheless although the exhibits are in general poorly labeled.
