This place was highly recommended and while it was interesting, there is very little information about the items on display as you walk round which detracted from the overall experience. The building is stunning and great to explore. The items downstairs including the bodies was interesting!

The National Museum was on our to-do list, learning about the extremely rich history was insane! I highly recommend it for anyone who is interested in learning about the history of Lebanon ... must say the mummy exhibit was super eerie but amazing! (I visited in July 2019) - The staff were also super lovely!

This is a beautiful museum housing some fascinating archeological gems. Beirut has some truly fascinating history and it’s great a tiny portion of it is on display. The admission is very cheap and a real bargain compared to equivalent museums in other major cities. I would definitely recommend taking a couple of hours to look around.

The National Museum was on our to do list when we were to visit Lebanon. There was quite an amount of tourist groups but it didn't impact the visit. The entrance fee is very cheap 5000L.L. (around 3$ US) and you get to explore 3 floors including: the sarcophagi downstairs and the 2 mummies. It was a very interesting visit as this museum has many of the items that were hidden during the civil war. Overall : Highly recommended - be sure to go if you are in the area.
