The museum is filled with artifacts from various periods of history.

The highlight is clearly the newly discovered tablet V of the epic of Gilgamesh.

I loved seeing these ancient items. Almost everything posted in English though some of the translations need work (i.e. children's playings = toys). Two galleries around a glassed in courtyard filled with inscription stones pulled from a vulnerable (to ISIS) monument. Be aware of the dates. Things from Sassinid period 200 to 600 CE are covered in Christan symbols but no mention is made of this due to the current Muslim sensibilities. Apparently they don't like reminding Kurds of their pre-Islamic Christian faith, but it is there if you know to look.
