    This museum is located within a posh neighborhood which is quite secluded from Beirut city center. It is quite far from other major attraction of the city.  more »

    Loved this museum/Galleries and the fact that it used to be an actual house made it better. Loved the original rooms that were kept as they were.  more »

    A real gem in the heart of Beirut. The Palace was built in the 19th century and hosts some of the most interesting exhibitions in town, plus a marvellous permanent collection. Also, the shop has a great selection of local designers and artisans' works, and the bar on the esplanade offers a fantastic atmosphere.

    Got to learn a lot about history of Beirut when viewing the permanent exhibition. The temporary exhibition was good too. The building was beautifully renovated, and the building itself is worth the trip.

    Free and worth a visit. The building it's more impressive than the collection, but be sure to check out the poster collection highlight past museum openings in the downstairs library. Excellent signage.

    Museum has a variety of works which are really worth checking out. Really helpful reception to advise on the best way to tour the museum. Nice cafe outside too, but staff were a little unfriendly when they found out I was only after a take away fresh orange juice.

    A newly renovated building which is already a unique architectural building in Beirut, the renovation have added a special interior environment adding to the richness of the museum. They have an amazing cafe on the ground floor where you can enjoy a meal or a coffee in a very nice ambience.
