Zeyad, blogging at Iraqslogger, reports that the Ministry of Culture has formed a committee to make the necessary arrangements in order to reopen the Iraqi Museum in Baghdad early next year. Over 70 thousand archaeological pieces will be on display, many of which have been recently rehabilitated.


Zeyad's source for the above may have been this announcement from the Iraq Ministry of Culture. The ministry has set up a committee to re-open the Iraqi museum and to provide the necessary supplies, security and "to rearrange again (EXHIBITS?)." Electronic protection and iron gates are mentioned. Also that the museum was able to rehabilitate some of the artifacts and will be showing more than (70) thousand pieces in all museum halls. The opening of the museum will be a major event which will reflect the good image of the reality of the new Iraq.
