01 May 2021
Baghdad-Al-Sharqiya, May 1: The Iraqi authorities began coordination with international parties such as the American Smith Sonian Foundation to rebuild the Mosul Museum and restore the city’s position as a vital center for culture in Iraq.
In 2019, a team from the Smithsonian Institution in Washington visited the Mosul Museum to assess the damage and begin developing a reconstruction plan, as part of a project in cooperation with the French Louvre Museum, the World Monuments Fund, and the Alef Foundation in Switzerland.
Destroyed by gunmen as the rescue team laid a grid on the ground and marked each item before carefully transporting it to a storage facility designated for future restoration and potential reassembly.
The researcher at the Smithsonian Institution, Richard Coren, who is involved in the rehabilitation project for the Mosul Museum, said the restoration could help the Iraqis overcome the devastation wrought by ISIS.
