CitySighting-Lebanon started operating on the ground a few weeks ago, on May 5th, in an endeavor to provide both tourists and locals with easy and enjoyable experiences in their explorations of the rich history of Lebanon.
The opportunity of touring Beirut in a Sightseeing bus is not be missed, neither would be visiting and exploring The National Museum of Beirut and its treasures. This museum, which was officially opened in 1942, is the principal museum of archaeology in our country.
The collection of treasures of The National Museum of Beirut began after World War II, amassing 100,000 objects, most of which are antiquities and medieval finds from excavations undertaken by Lebanon’s Directorate General of Antiquities.
From these 100,000 objects, the museum exhibits around 1300 artifacts, ranging in date from prehistoric times to the medieval Mamluk period.
The National Museum is located in Mazra’a district in Beirut on the intersection of Abdallah al-Yafi avenue and Damascus road.
