At the beginning of the second module of the conservation course which started in March, and after our first home practicum projects had been discussed, then one of the advisory council members, Lois Olcott Price visited the institute and gave us some information about the Winterthur museum where she works and talked also about her job there. Later, Miss Jessie Johnson, Academic Director, brought us happy news about a trip to Sulaymaniyah to visit the exhibition which was sponsored by UNESCO in the museum of Slemani.
The next day we went there, the weather was wonderful and the trip was interesting especially with the presence of Miss Jessie and Lois .
The Museum was beautiful and attractive, the pattern of the exhibition was different and there were different kinds of artifacts. The subject of the exhibition was “IN WRITING”. After we finished our tour in the museum we took this beautiful picture together. Then we went to a restaurant for lunch with Jessie and Lois. It was very delicious. After lunch we came back to Erbil and the next day we discussed what we had seen in the museum.
