  • The modern and contemporary art museum, Nicolas Sursock museum, reflects the cultural artistic side of the beautiful Beirut. Free of charge nd for no costs, you can enjoy a tour in Sursock's museum admiring many paintings and sculptures. Many exhibitions have been held here, but also permanent collections of modern art
  • The Nicolas Ibrahim Sursock Museum is housed in Nicolas Sursock’s former residence, built in 1912. The Museum’s architecture integrates Venetian and Ottoman elements that were typical in Lebanon at the turn of the century. The Salon Arabe, where Sursock greeted his guests, remains intact. The hand-carved woodwork that makes up its walls and ceiling was imported from Damascus in the 1920s. Some of the mansion’s original tiles are still visible on the first floor of the Museum. In 1999, the building was classified as a class A historical building by the Directorate General of Antiquities.
  • Nice space. Free museum and has free guided tours on regular basis also in English. It houses mostly Lebanese artists’ works. Nice to check out.
  • Beautiful architecture and paintings from mostly Lebanese artists tracing the cultural mouvements of the 20 century in the region. Nice restaurant and gift shop with Lebanese designer items.
  • Very nice and modern art-museum! It is very professional and everything is described in both Arabic and English.
