A country rich in history must have a first class museum to exhibit some of the relics up to its long history. Such is the case with Lebanon which has seen more civilizations, creeds and cultures than virtually any other country. When it was built, it was on the outskirts of Beirut, but it has now been engulfed by the rapidly growing city and is surrounded by a pleasant residential area.

Approximately enough, opposite the Museum is a small garden with a partial reconstruction of a Roman colonnade found in Beirut, near Parliament, to get the visitor into the right mood for seeing the museum

The museum contains rare items of different civilizations. It contains priceless examples of the earliest alphabetical writing, a Phoenician invention Location: Rue de Damas (intersection of Avenue Fouad I).


This Museum is one of the most important cultural centers of Beirut. The building, a mansion built in the 19th century, has a marvelous architectural design. It was donated by Mr. Nicholas Sursock to Beirut's Municipal Council. Visitors have to pass through the garden which is itself one of the Museum's main attractions. The museum is home to large collection of artwork, mostly Lebanese. The Museum holds an annual Fall/Winter exhibit for Lebanese artists. In the Fall of 96 and until the beginning of 97, some 142 Lebanese artists will exhibit their best work, many coming from Europe and North America. Location: Ashrafieh - Quartier Sursok.
