  This museum, which is one of the oldest and most important museums in the Middle East has very rare holdings and includes the rare and unique display of a composition of human and his upbringing, as well as an exhibition of the most important stuffed animals. It is one of the most important Arab museums that deepen human thinking and trendy thought, that holds advantages in the characterization of many humanitarian cases and situations and their relationship with nature, which a lot of developed countries follow and seek to provide a great deal of museums and galleries that explain phenomena and humanitarian cases in order to encourage the discovery and development. Perhaps the university is very proud to have such an important museum since 1946, i.e. more than sixty-five years, at a time that many countries do not have universities, institutes or colleges, where the museum opened in 2nd of May 1946, which includes several sections, like the laboratory, the Department of mummification, painting and sculpture, the library and others.
