One of the most wonderful museums I ever visit! Breathtaking expositions and history. I love that place ❤️
For a historic power house that Lebanon was over the millennia, this museum is a port representation. It has some interesting artifacts, but not enough to represent all stages of the history in the region. But still was worth the visit, which you pay entrance fees.
Beautiful museum chronicling Lebanon's history. Very well laid out and definitely worth a visit! Make sure to follow the signs to view the museum in chronological order.
