Supported by the German Consulate
Koya Museum gears up for grand opening
KOYA — The Koya Museum is poised to open, with its artifacts in place, awaiting the German Consulate’s official inauguration. The German Consulate funded the museum, which will display 100 archaeological pieces with clearly marked eras.
Yeketi Wahid, the Director of Koya’s Archaeological Office, told 964media that the museum, located within Qshlay Koya, has completed all its galleries and necessary facilities.
“This marks our first step. With the museum’s opening, we now have a venue to welcome tourists and showcase the artifacts,” Wahid stated.
Koya is home to 230 known archaeological sites, and the director is optimistic about future discoveries, suggesting the presence of additional sites.
The collection includes historical items such as cups, statues, pots, coins, knives, and decorative pieces found in past excavations.
“Some artifacts are as old as 6,000 years, featuring items from the Stone Age and pre-Islamic periods,” Wahid further noted.
