  • Transportation was a little difficult, but view wonderful. Museum was generally fine. On the other hand preservation and explanation of the pictures was poor.
  • It reflect and preserve the image of our great Philosopher Peinter Artist and Poet
  • Many paintings by Gibran but little information given. No photos allowed inside, but the city view from the entrance is spectacular.
  • A fine collection of works by Gibran are on display. Worth the detour.
  • Nice old place
