Worth a trip for the building alone. Outside is beautiful but the 'must see' are the rooms kept in an original state. Free entry with a donation recommended. There is a café and small shop outside.

The highlight of our visit in Beirut. Beautiful building, where one can view the cultural development of a nation through art in the permanent exhibitions. Beirut is bursting with art, displayed in this museum gallery for free. The cafe restaurant outside is also worth visiting.

It’s an art gallery more than a museum, the quartier where it located it’s very historic and famous.
