The Bani Walid Museum administration has begun maintenance and restoration work for several parts of the museum located in the city center, in preparation for its reopening to visitors.
The supervisors explained to Alwasat that they assessed the damage suffered as a result of wars and natural factors before starting urgent maintenance work.
The supervisors added that the maintenance and restoration work is being carried out under the supervision of the Libyan Antiquities Authority, as well as maintenance of power lines, painting of walls, and maintaining the garden at the entrance.
The Bani Walid Museum is considered one of the important museums in Libya, as it includes monuments from the most important civilizations in ancient Libyan history, including the prehistoric, Phoenician, Roman, Byzantine and Islamic eras.
The museum was inaugurated in September 1999 and it includes 12 halls, each dedicated to displaying a different era.
The museum was exposed during the last period to incursions by an unknown armed group that carried out acts of vandilism.
