  • a beautiful and educational Museum: a collection of amazing and unique minerals from around the world. The treasure room is just magical! A nice uncluttered also scenography which plunges us into the fascinating minerals universe.

  • I loved this Museum: there's a treasure trove of mineral stones from 60 countries of the world. We had the chance to visit with the presence of the founder of the Museum, who gave us some explanations and comments on this beautiful collection of stones, some of which are precious stones (gold, diamond, Emerald, Safir, etc..) Real wonders! I highly recommend a visit to this recent Museum of Beirut.

  • Just across the street from the National Museum of Beirut, came to him when I say also appear here. The world's hidden treasure your time alone with dazzling colors and textures you see you're going to have a good time and you will feel refreshed ... The Museum already is ok not great, when I saw that they sold at the boutique out beauty wanes.
