  • If you are in Tyre it would be a shame to miss the soap museum. Its a small place with a small tour but worth while. You get to know how soap was made and get a chance to buy some. Very pleasant place...  more »
  • This museum shows how soap is made, painstakingly shaped, the patterns or insignia of each family and how soap is perfumed. The museum itself is clean (wonderful bathrooms with really good soap), cool...  more »
  • Before when visited in Saida constantly came to this museum. He was free. Somewhere six months ago have entered tickets, now stands the entrance to this small museum as well as a ticket in a huge Beirut archaeological. And a thousand lire more expensive than Crusader fortress immediately in Saida. There before there were not many tourists now as something completely deserted. Those wishing to visit the Museum for little money. Next you build a new history museum with a transparent floor (three floors), after its introduction in Sidon SOAP Museum have yet to appear and the most powerful competitor directly behind the wall. Several rooms inside the Museum, which in fact once cooked and dried olive SOAP. There is a tv that shows a 10-minute film about how this most soaps do. In Russian no-Arabic, French and English. But it is clear. In General, you can visit does not take a lot of time. Something new will surely learn. But right around not less interesting and totally free ancient Sidon. The Museum has a café (only drinks, eat nothing) and SOAP shop, the range in which in recent years has become more than meager.

  • Very nice place. I've been there several times
  • Nice place to learn about a piece of Saida's history and learn about how soap is made and even buy some. Funny how they have liquid soap in their rest room 🤔
  • Very old place that used to be a soap factory and now turned into a museum. If you are visiting Saidon make sure you pass by the museum.
  • This is a soap factory that has operated for so many centuries and still existing today..
  • 5000LL entrance
