Gibran Museum Tours

3 Reviews
When prominent Lebanese poet, artist and philosopher Khalil Gibran died in 1931, his body was interred within the chapel of a nineteenth century monastery on the outskirts of Bsharri according to his wishes. This monastery, set into the rocky slopes on the eastern side of town, now houses a museum dedicated to Gibran.

Besides Gibran’s tomb, the museum collection includes 440 of his original paintings and drawings, as well as private manuscripts and personal belongings from his time living in New York.

Practical Info

The museum operates a small gift shop where you can purchase postcards of Gibran’s paintings or pick up a copy of his famous book.

Did You Know? Gibran’s most famous work among English speakers was his 1923 book of philosophical essays known as The Prophet. According to an article in The New Yorker, he’s the third best-selling poet of all time.
