Beirut National Museum (Musée National de Beyrouth)
An essential stop for all visitors to the city, Beirut National Museum (Musée National de Beyrouth) features an impressive, well-displayed collection of archaeological artifacts from throughout the ages, offering a thorough overview of Lebanon’s history. Entry into the National Museum of Beirut is a staple of most historical Beirut walking tours.

The museum collection is displayed in chronological order, beginning in prehistory and ending in the Ottoman era. The circuit begins on the ground floor, where you’ll find various ancient statues and mosaics. The museum’s upper level features more than 1,000 artifacts from the Bronze and Iron ages, as well as from the Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine and Mamluk eras, all arranged by theme. Of its many artifacts, the Phoenician gilded bronze figurines found buried near the Obelisk Temple are probably the museum’s most famous.

Insider’s Tip: The museum’s audiovisual room near the entrance plays the documentary Revival every hour from 9am and 4pm, covering the restoration, revival and reopening of the Beirut National Museum.

Check heart of Beirut capital and Martyr’s square in downtown. View Pigeon Rocks at the Corniche. Beirut Downtown: Martyr’s square in downtown holds a monument to the Martyrs of the Civil War, when the country was wracked by sectarian fighting and external interference. The statue, which is of a young man and woman reaching for the sky, provides a good backdrop for pictures. Corniche: Located just off the western end of the Corniche are several natural rock structures/ arch known as Pigeon Rocks. You can also take a boat ride around the rock formations and apparently through some caves. National Museum: The story of the National Museum started in 1919 with a small group of ancient artifacts, which had been collected by Raymond Weill, a French officer stationed in Lebanon. These objects were displayed in one of the rooms of the German Deaconesses building in Georges Picot Street in Beirut. This exhibition hall served as a temporary museum.
