Worth a trip for the building alone. Outside is beautiful but the 'must see' are the rooms kept in an original state. Free entry with a donation recommended. There is a café and small shop outside.

The highlight of our visit in Beirut. Beautiful building, where one can view the cultural development of a nation through art in the permanent exhibitions. Beirut is bursting with art, displayed in this museum gallery for free. The cafe restaurant outside is also worth visiting.

It’s an art gallery more than a museum, the quartier where it located it’s very historic and famous.

The building is beautiful. It is great that they kept an authentic "salon" in one of the rooms. Also, I loved the freshness of the contemporary art that was in exhibit. It gave me the opportunity to discover how lively the art scene is in...More

We did not eat at the museum. However, if you're looking for a great breakfast, I'd suggest Le Cafe Sursock which is about a half block away. The traditional breakfast is enough to share for two and was reasonably priced at... More
