Right down to the power cuts that frequently plunge its artifacts into shadow, the National Museum of Afghanistan is a symbol of the country's recent hardships. Its building was shelled, looted and caught fire during the 1992s civil war. Taliban extremists later smashed many centuries- old statues Afghanistan Museum, Kabul, Afghanistan

Afghanistan National Museum was closed following the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) takeover on 15 August 2021, but it was later reopened. Officials of the country’s National Museum say there are no concerns about any security situation and now the people can easily visit the museum.
Meanwhile, security officials of the museum have assured of full security of the museum, saying that all the visitors of the world and local Afghans can come and visit the museum and the door is always open to visitors and local and international journalists.
On the other side, there have been rumors that some historic monuments are missing in the museum, but officials of the museum by rejecting the rumors say all historic monuments and cultural heritage are preserved and still in the museum.
In a quiet corner of Kabul, in a quiet and beautiful building, thousands of stories and symbols of centuries have made a home. Most of those visiting the national museum are students and knowledgeable figures, but sometimes some families also pay visits of the museum.
Nasir Ahmad, a father who came to the national museum together with his family, says he came to this museum after about 50 years. He was happy as there was peace and security throughout the country. He was complaining about the lack of instructors at the museum to introduce the treasures and cultural heritage to visitors.
The country’s national museum has now the home of about 45 to 50 thousand artifacts and cultural heritage that have mostly come during the excavations of the Ministry of Information and Culture and the return of smuggled monuments. Buddhist stone carvings, ivories from the Indian art, prehistoric stone works, bronzes from the Roman art, mosaics of different periods and sculptures are part of the treasures of the national museum.
