When UNESCO asked for help in salvaging pieces from Hellenistic sites under threat from imminent water damage, many relics found a haven at the Ancient Orient Museum. There are also prehistoric items from Egypt, Turkey, Iran and Iraq, which would please ancient near-east enthusiasts. Have a look at the slide show of the actual excavations on the Euphrates River which were pivotal to the collection. Another attraction at the museum is an informative video on Palmyra, the ancient Syrian city on the edge of the Sahara desert.
