What travelers say:

The Damascus Museum is the largest museum in Syria and was established in 1919. In 1936, in accordance with the architectural form of the Umayyad Caliph Abdul Malik Palace of the Umayyad dynasty of the Arab Empire that was destroyed, a new hall was built using the materials of the old palace. The main collection of the museum is the relics of Greek culture and the relics of the Eastern Roman era and Islamic era. Most of the more precious cultural relics are from the Greek era. The most outstanding exhibits are a temple built in the original mausoleum from more than 200 BC and an imperial mausoleum from more than 100 BC. Its shrines, statues, and murals are of different shapes.
