  • Interesting and exciting place to learn more about the great work of Khalil Jabran. Whose story truly fascinated me. Use the chance to sit on one of the benches at the entrance to enjoy amazing views and cool breeze
  • I stopped by each of his paintings and work and tried to devel into it. Finally I took downstairs where Gibran is resting for eternity, this place was dark with a slight beam of light only and following lines were written: “I am alive like you, and I am standing beside you. Close your eyes and look around, you will see me in front of you.”
  • Great place. Amazing how it's build into the mountain. We'll maintained and organised and the views outside are breathtaking. Astonishing how they present Jebran's body in its coffin. 5 stars.
  • The perfect spot to inspire and read. Becharri the dweling of my heart.
  • A very culturel destination, filled with a history we all need to know. This museum shows the life and death of Gibran in a creative setting.
