This is one of the rare art museums in the city of Beirut. It features temporary exhibits and has a permanent collection that focuses on the work of Lebanese artists. Another attraction is the building of the museum. Visitors are frequently fascinated by its architecture and design. A recent renovation makes it just as worthy of a visit as the featured art. Highly recommended.
There is not doubt that the museum building is iconic and it is my favorite part of the museum. The little that remains of the former garden is interesting. I am not sure how the building looked from the inside before it was transformed into a museum, but it seems to have lost much of its charm. The permanent collection features some beautiful artwork by mostly Lebanese painters. The level 1 of the museum showcases the former glory of the interior.
A gem in the heart of Sursock, Beirut. I have been here 3 times and will come back. The size makes it good for a one or two hour browse. Then the cafe and small shop are well worth a stop. The date cake is a real treat :)
Small, well-kept museum. Lovely outdoor cafe available to the left when you enter the museum grounds. Beautiful for a coffee or glass of wine. The museum is donation based and there’s no entry fee. The entire place can be toured in under an hour if you’re quick. Not sure how often things change there, but it seems to be an active museum. Guards/stafd inside weren’t too observant (busy playing on their phones) or intrusive at all.
We don't go to TONS of museums but really love this one! It's a beautiful old building, recently renovated, and it's a manageable size. We loved the downstairs temporary exhibition, and also recommend the cafe next door for a coffee.
A must-see in Beirut. The recent renovation includes a delicious restaurant and a gift store. Excellent collection of regional and domestic artists, regular events, and much more. A real gem.
definitely worth a visit. presented more contemporary art, but many interesting historical artifacts, as well as preserved the historical design and the filling of individual rooms. next to a good restaurant with a pleasant atmosphere.
Art museum that also serves a good location to see the architecture style of early 1900s. It has 2 permanent collections as well as non-permanent collections. The permanent collection feature many famous Lebanese artists and art related to Lebanon. The cafe of the museum has pleasant seating.
Nice building. Permanent and temporary exhibitions. Free entrance. Do not miss the statue at the entrance (The Weeping Women).
