Middle East Galleries

Middle East Galleries

Now Open!

Our first new signature gallery in more than a decade, the new Middle East Galleries will take you on a journey to the world’s first cities, starting with a single footprint left in clay by a worker at Ur, Iraq, 6,500 years ago. See some of the Museum’s most iconic objects—like the Ram in the Thicket, the bull-headed lyre, and the burial attire of Queen Puabi of Ur—in their stunning new home.
