A mosaic of diversity, Lebanese people have always had a unique appreciation of the arts. Our year-round theatre performances, exhibitions, and art galleries are a testimony to that.
However, if you are tired of the classics, we have put together a list of 5 alternative museums that you can visit for a taste of something out-of-the-ordinary. In fact, we highly recommend you check them out the soonest!
Catch on the only place you’ll see Trump, Putin and the Sabbouha (Sabah) hanging out together!
Hall of Fame Museum in Zouk Mosbeh houses an array of life-sized animatronic silicon figures that can move and talk. You will get to see everyone from Einstein to Wadih el Saffi there just waiting for a photo-op.
Explore Beit Beirut, arguably the most famous structure in Beirut, for a one-of-a-kind experience!
Only the Lebanese can turn their pain into art. This astounding museum and urban cultural center played a major role in our civil war. It rises right at the demarcation line that divided our capital back then into what came to be called West Beirut and East Beirut. Terms we no longer use.
Reconstructed to retain its original form in the collective memory, Beit Beirut museum features weekly displays of art inside its infamous yellow-stone and bullet-infested walls.
Today, the center celebrates the history of Beirut, its resilience and how far we have come as one nation.
Our team works tirelessly to ensure Lebanese people have a reliable alternative to the politically-backed media outlets with their heavily-funded and dangerous propaganda machines. We've been detained, faced nonstop cyber attacks, censorship, attempted kidnapping, physical intimidation, and frivolous lawsuits draining our resources.
