  • 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.
