A partnership between Italy and Iraq has resulted in a website that showcases the recovered antiquities of Baghdad's National Museum. A virtual tour of the museum's artifacts, spanning from the prehistoric to the Islamic era of the Mesopotamian region can be viewed on the website in Arabic, English and Italian.

Since the looting of the museum in 2003 during the US invasion of Iraq, stolen antiquities have been steadily recovered and placed back in the museum. Ancient artifacts that can be found online include the famous Warka Mask, a female marble head from Uruk believed to date between 3,400 and 3,100 B.C., as well as limestone statues of lamassu, which are winged, bull-like creatures with human heads that date to the eighth and ninth centuries B.C.
