The inauguration ceremony was held at the Khatam-ul-Anbiya hall of the Imam Husseinâ€™s (AS) mausoleum with the massive presence of Iraqi people.
Two documentaries featuring the history and construction phases of the museum were screened at the ceremony.
Director of the museum, Ala Zia-ed-Din said it was opened as part of the programs marking the 7th cultural-religious festival of â€œSpring of Martyrdomâ€. The festival is annually held on the occasion of the third Imamâ€™s (AS) birth anniversary.
He said the 500-square-meter museum has four halls in which invaluable works belonging to the Astan-e Imam Hussein (AS) have been put on display.
The exhibited works include rare copies of the Holy Quran, carpets, old arms like swords and shields, and pieces of the cover of the Holy Kaâ€™aba.
The gate of the museum has golden ornaments and there are 3-meter pillars with crystal pieces on which the phrase â€œYa Husseinâ€ has been inscribed.
