The Henri Pharaon collection is eclectic and not always well lit but it is the truly spectacular assembling of one man's exquisite good taste. Take some time in the garden before going in - you will be unlucky to find you are sharing this lovely house with anybody else! A highlight for me was the original 1943 flag of Lebanon,... More

We had a wedding event in the museum. The place is gorgeous and antique. The garden organized in a very good shape. It's a great place to have your event in.

This museum is spectacular - from the lush gardens to the gorgeous exhibits full of history and splendor. This museum was somewhat difficult to find (I walked from a nearby hotel), but well worth the search.

Walking around in this beautiful palace offers a glimpse into a fine period in Lebanese history when the nation grew in national awareness and pride. The art and architecture are beautiful.
