Very interesting small museum. You can appreciate also paintings ( kind of disturbing emotions) We bought posters of his paintings, you can see his tomb and learn about the life of this great philosopher. Never felt the smell of the roses like this before.Well preserved in stone.

A must-visit place of Khalil Gibran. The museum was well maintained and has more to offer such as books and other things that was used by Khalil during his days.

It's a well organized collection of works from the writer and painter, with a lot of information about his life, including his tomb. The museum welcomes visitor warmly and also offers a beautiful view of the valley. It's a great walk and and very nice place to visit in town.

If you are in the mountainous part of northern Lebanon and if you are interested in the life and artistic talent of Khalil Gibran then you will enjoy stopping at this museum. The location is where Khalil Gibran lived and worked. The views of the surroundings are spectacular from the museum surrounds.

Mostly his paintings; beautiful building and grounds. The museum has a beautiful setting and is a series of rooms; you follow along with a free guidebook provided by the staff.

Its a beautiful site to be present there and look at the... More

Good experience for the kids to know a little bit about Gibran, too tiny house full of drawings of Gibran. It would by nice if there was a guides to tell a bit about him.

It may be a small place, but it is a must, to feel and really know who Gibran was, the writer, the philosopher, the painter, and the human! The place has so many of his paintings, such pieces of art, the style the genius of his work. Here you feel his presence, you live through the experiences of his life,... More
