The National Museum documents 17 thousand pieces electronically [Archives:2004/757/Local News]
The National Museum has accomplished the recroding and documenting of 17 thousand historical artifacts, in detail and with photos.
The museum has also completed the renovation of one thousand wooden pieces and 27 bronzes, which required precision and hard work.
The museum will soon open a temporary wing to display 1600 pieces, coinciding with the celebration of Sana'a, the Arab Cultural Capital 2004. The artifacts date back to the pre-Islamic era and subsequent eras. Pieces reflecting Yemeni folklore will also be displayed.
