The Pergamon Museum in Berlin, Germany features an excellent exhibit of Assyrian artifacts, statues, and reliefs.
The Middle East Museum exhibition displays objects, found by German archeologists and others, from the areas of Assyrian, Sumerian and Babylonian culture. Additionally there are historical buildings, reliefs and lesser cultural objects and jewelry. The Assyrian room features the lamassu and numerous reliefs. It was an amazing experience to see the Ishtar Gates and the gigantic lammasus!
The main display is the Ishtar Gate and the Procession Way of Babylon together with the throne room facade of Nebuchadrezzar II.
The Vorderasiatisches Museum also displays the Meissner fragment from the Epic of Gilgamesh.
