  • An amazing tourist attraction detailing the resistance of illegal occupation of South Lebanon. There is something for everyone whether it be recent history, weapon enthusiasts, activities for kids, and a restaurant. Some what poorly organized though.
  • Nice place. You can find water cooler every now and then for free. Cheap entrance (3$ for adult). There are facilities for kids also. There is a playground for kids and some adventurous activities (such as zipline). I recommend to have a tour guide (it is for free) and to take a light jacket as it is cold afternoon.
  • this place is amazing well maintained and very organized. guides are available and some of them are multilingual,maps are also available if you just want to tour it on your own. plus the views are breathtaking. many activities for adults and kids are also available and the restaurant "tayoun" next to the landmark is recommended.
  • Been there at noon, the place is on top of a hill overlooking a large portion of the coast line. The site itself is very clean, organized and preserved. We took a guide (which is free of charge) and he explained all the events that took place before and after the war. The weapons museum is impressive, it also has all the types of bombs used by the enemy in 2006. It takes around 1.5-2 hours to visit the place. It's a good attraction for photo lovers as the scenery from the top is amazing
  • What a historic landmark. I won't comment too much about the politics since it is extremely controversial but it is clearly a well presented museum that shows what the Lebanese resistance looked like back in the 80s and 90s. You see real destroyed tanks, trucks, and the interior of a resistance trench and tunnel system. Cool place to stop by and see.
