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, extremely well-executed propaganda museum celebrating Hezbollah, but I didn't feel confident driving with the crazy... 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 the hideouts on the hillside and a tunnel. There is an informative film to watch,... More

The site has been open for 5 years, it is situated on a hill previously used by resistance warriors in the fight against the Israeli invasion of (South) Lebanon. You can ask for a guided tour, you learn a lot more about the story of the site this way. Then you get to visit an impressive tunnel in the depth... More

Mlita is a unique outdoor museum which is a MUST if you were visiting South of Lebanon. This museum is informative and gives you a different perspective of the Lebanese-Israelli war and some of the Resistances “secrets” of how they fought Israel. The site of the museum is on a hill with a panoramic view (AMAZING views of the nearby... More

Very interesting tourist site that celebrate the Hezbollah and its struggle against Israel. The site itself is part museum, part outdoor park with beautiful scenery. On display is war loot and Hezbollah equipment used in the resistance against the israeli occupation of southern Lebanon. Well worth the travel if you´r interested in understanding the Hezbollah point of view.

It's really worth to see it to understand better history of Lebanon during last ~40 years. Beautiful place, amazing gardens and flowers mixed with guns and tanks, what makes all this more impressive. And the way to Mleeta trough mountains is also very beautiful.

I have visited Mleeta Hezbollah museum on both my visits to Lebanon. I will also visit whenever I go there. An outstanding layout with exceptional views. But what truly makes this place worthy of visit is when you know that this is the same place where true men forgo all their attachments to this world and made a stand against... More
