Iraq to build museum in Samarra

A bulletin that will be of great interest to Samarra fans (you can find the original announcement here):

The Iraqi Ministry of Housing and Construction on Tuesday (February 25th) announced the start of construction on a 17.2 billion dinar ($14.6 million) historical museum in Samarra.

The museum will encompass 27,000 square metres and will feature three buildings dedicated to antiques, artefacts and precious stones from various eras, a theatre and a conference hall, a ministry statement said.

The museum also will feature green spaces, fountains, restaurants, a library and a cinema hall, the statement said.

The project is slated to be completed within 18 months.
