Great museum with lovely mosaics from the area. Also features statutes, sarcophagi, pots, funeral urns and jewellery. The restoration video is worth watching, if only to appreciate the effort that has gone into restoring the museum since the civil war.
Beautiful museum wonderfully preserved pieces that witnessed unique historical periods. It even has a the mark of the recent Lebanese war with a hole in one of its most magnificent mosaics. Museum gift shop has exclusive items from talented Lebanese designers.
It was a great music. But, I felt the historical pieces were a bit destroyed. Also, what I really liked is the mosaic. It looked amazing.
Great museum, fantastic pieces of Roman times, Hellenic period and beyond. Unmissable, so well curated, well laid out, guide with an iPad where you can scan the selected pieces and understand the history. A must see highlight the recreated Roman tomb from Tyre, the famous sarcophagus with the first Phoenician alphabet and the 25 sarcophagus collection on the ground floor!
Best museum I've ever visited in my life, and I've visited a lot of museums. Very calm, clean, and of course AMAZING historical pieces in very well condition. Everything is described in both Arabic and English.
It is the smallest museum I have visited, but it is the most interesting museum I have visited. In the #Beirut National Museum with the largest collection of sarcophagi of this style in the world. Some jewels. 30 sarcophagi in total. In the photograph a part of them appears. Everything exhibited in this museum, unlike other museums, is NATIONAL, EVERYTHING has been achieved in Lebanon, in its different periods or ages: prehistory, bronze, iron ... Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine, Phoenician and Ottoman periods.
It was a great museum. But I felt the historical pieces were a bit destroyed. Also, what I really liked is the mosaic. It looked amazing.

One of my most favourite museum. Full of history. Don't miss to watch the movie that introduces the museum. Greek coffins on the underground floor made me trilled. Don't miss this museum if you visit Beirut!
Exciting and wonderful statues that shows the times of the Egyptian and Roman and Greek empires, in addition to that, numerous interesting tools and figures are displayed, from money to tools. I'd give it 5 stars but there isn't much of explanations on the statues in the museum.
Weird stuff. I liked the mummy inside and its story. Amazing work. Keep it up
The 2016 renovation of this venerable Lebanese institution has turned it into an essential place to visit. Even if you are not an archeology fan, which is its main focus, this museum will fascinate you if only by the sheer expanse of the period covered by the exhibits. Impeccably kept, the renovated building is a far cry from its past. The exhibits are beautifully laid out. They never overwhelm leaving visitors wanting for more. The museum is working on an expansion to allow more room for its vast hidden collection. Do not miss it.
Nice historical place... Book a guide to help you. You won't understand anything alone except if you are an expert in that field. It is the only national museum in Lebanon
A really noteworthy museum of the Mediterranean basin civilisations. Outstanding, above all, the jewels. The only flaw is the logical/chronological order of the visit path, but on the other hand the building comes from another epoch.
One of the rare Historical monuments that have been spared from destruction that took place in the near-by during the Civil war. The history of old Phoenicia is very well represented, as well as the remaining historical great events of Lebanon. From the Greek dominance to the prestige of the Roman empire. As well as Arabic and Ottoman Era that was deeply engraved in the Lebanese conscience. It's a place not to miss while you are in Beirut.
Hosts some priceless gems of Lebanese history. Newly opened section on the -1 floor is definitely worth the visit. And there’s no excuse to skip when the entrance fee is just 5,000 L.L.!
Really amazing pieces on display from Phoenician, Greek and Roman history of the region. Very well presented. A must see.
Very well designed museum. The museum is well curated and is easily taken in in an hour or two. Unlike the museums of Europe where you can literally spent days going through all the various rooms. The National Museum in Beirut is a pleasure to visit, you get a great experience and a quality experience that will deliver a brief history summary of Lebanon and the greater region.. well worth the $3 USD tickets
We fled from the heat of Beirut into this museum and we didn't regret it. Very beautiful museum about the rich history of Lebanon, especially about the civilizations B.C., we didn't need a guide, the written explanations were extensive. The movie about the history of the museum taught us how the collection was protected during the civil war. Only downside to this museum is the cheap entry price. We only had to pay 5000 LBP. If it would be so cheap for Lebanese only I could understand, but tourist spend a lot on airplane tickets and hotels, I think they could also pay a bit more for the entry and in this way support the further development of the museum.
The place looks really good and well maintained. The staff is friendly and welcoming. Personaaly love the coin collection. And yes, did I say that they mummies here?
