The Museum of Raqqa held an important collection of cultural and archaeological artifacts from pre-history to modern times. However, the museum suffered damage and looting in 2013. With the restoration of the museum’s building now completed, this project will carry out restorations of part of the remaining collection so that the museum may be re-opened.
