it's interesting. Not the usual museum experience. We were in Sour and decided to do a detour to visit the museum. It shows the guerrilha strategies used to recover the Lebanese territories invaded by Israel.

A day trip to Mleeta is worth the uncertainty of the adventure. We'd heard from several people that the Mleeta Museum, celebrating the victory of Hezbollah over Israel, was a must-do day trip from Beirut. Many people rent a car to go to this unusual,...More

As a landscape designer, I think highly of this place, and I appreciate the experience. I think it's clean, safe, and the folks are very kind.

Mleeta was one of the primary strongholds of Hezbollah resistance during the occupation of southern Lebanon by Israel. The main memorial is an impressive symbolic expression of the conflict - a pit filled with destroyed Israeli military hardware. There are also well presented displays of...More
