National Geographic and the National Gallery Launch Hidden Treasures of Afghanistan Websites

The National Geographic Society (NGS) in collaboration with the government of Afghanistan, will organize a traveling exhibition of the re-discovered treasures from the Kabul Museum – extraordinary collections long thought to have been destroyed or stolen. 231 artifacts will travel to four major cities within the United States in a 17-month period.

AFGHANISTAN: Hidden Treasures will introduce the audience to the “Silk Road”: a metaphor for the exchange of goods and ideas across Asia which peaked in the first century CE. This exhibition is a window into the history and legacy of Afghanistan—a nation of diverse peoples who have faced extraordinary challenges—and also a means to engage Americans in thinking about the perseverance and present-day circumstances of this nation.

In advance of the exhibition opening, the National Geographic Society and the National Gallery of Art have launched two stunning websites with interactive maps, detailed photographs, captivating videos and fascinating information about the history and culture of Afghanistan.
