  • Interesting ancient middle east exhibits. A very neat, peaceful museum in the AUB campus. Free of charge with a nice shop.  more »
  • This museum on the campus of the American University of Beirut has many interesting exhibits. Although the displays at the National Museum are more dramatic, it is certainly worthwhile to visit this....  more »

  • This museum is admittedly dwarfed by the National Museum but if it was in any other city around the world it would be a prized possession. The artifacts and sculptures are displayed chronologically. The amount of glass were and ceramic were in good condition is amazing. Very good descriptions and collection. One is not overwhelmed. Be sure and visit the Geological dusplays at the adjacent Department of Geology. Both museums are free of charge. Located on the verdant grounds of the historic American University of Beirut.
