Baghdad: Eye’s Delight celebrates the capital of Iraq as one of the most important and influential cities in the Islamic world.

The exhibition will reveal Baghdad’s outstanding heritage as the capital of the great Abbasid caliphs (750-1258 CE), but also of the 20th century when the city once again experienced a renewed period of prosperity with the discovery of oil.


  • 26 October 2022 – 25 February 2023


The display takes the visitor on an imaginary tour across centuries, highlighting Baghdad’s role as a city of power, scholarship, and riches. It also explores the industry and commerce of Baghdad during the Abbasid rule and the development of modern industry in the 20th century.

The exhibition features objects on loan from 22 world-renowned institutions, including the Louvre, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Benaki Museum, the Vatican, and the Barjeel Foundation. These will include artifacts, photographs, and video footage.
