|National Museum of Aleppo reopens
The DGAM reported that the National Museum of Aleppo was opened to the public for the first time on 24th October since its closure in 2013. Aleppo National Museum, with its human and cultural treasures and its archaeological value, represents a unique witness on the progress of the Syrian cultures and civilisations.
The restoration of the museum was done with the support of the United Nations Development Program and generous funding from the Government of Japan.
We owe the museum staff a great debt for all their hard work protecting this collection during the conflict.
The reopening was accompanied by a 2-day international symposium entitled ” Aleppo City: Past, present and the future. more information on the symposium is available on the DGAM website.
The UNDP have shared a video, and there are several more on the Aleppo Archaeology Facebook page.
