Though provoking

unassuming but makes you think, not much of a museum more a building that you can look in. Personally I think they could do so much more with the building turning it in to a real reminder of what happened, telling the history. Green Line/Damascus Street just a very busy road now. I love history so wanted so much more.

Probably very cool - if you could get in

Set up as a museum of Lebanon´s troubled recent history (if I understand it right), but seems to be open only for special events. Please make it available for the general public !

A Real Eye Opener
Apr 2019 • Solo
This museum was a real eye opener for me and I found it quite harrowing.

The building is virtually destroyed and covered in bullet holes. When I went in April 2019 it had exhibition of photos. On the ground floor were photos of people before the Civil War. Then on the second floor were lots of pictures from the actual Civil War.

There is no charge to visit the museum. It is about 15 minute walk from Mohammed Al Amin Mosque. The museum is on the way to National Museum. I am not too sure of the opening hours, but definitely worth a visit.

Witness of Atrocities
Nov 2018 • Solo
The Barakat Building built in the 20s, was the center point of what used to be the demarcation line, or Green line where Different Lebanese factions fought. A renovation was done in a way to keep it as a witness and reminder of the painful memories of war. The Building was saved by activists in the 90. Hope Lebanese will remember this painful lesson

Impressive building

But I was disappointed that one of the most important sites in Beirut, regarding the civil war, only opens on special events... I heard really good reviews about the museum, but unfortunately, you have to be very lucky to visit it...

Amazing food quality @ Beirut
Dec 2018 • Couples
Beit Wared restaurant is located at Al Rocha with amazing sea view so you can enjoy the amazing food while seating facing the Mediterranean Sea wow:)
We ordered some appetizers and all was really good it was like 5 different appetizers along with lentil and mushroom soup.
The prices are really. It will cost you ~30$ per person including soft drinks and water.
I’m attaching copy of their menu

I recommend it for all day dinning.

Shell Shocked

Drove past; place closed unless an event. Shows what shelling did to Beirut- Israeli, Syrian. Much rebuilt now. This building preserved to remember.

Not open
Oct 2018
This place only opens when there is a event, function of gallery viewing, Despite what the various website may say regarding the opening times. Not even the security on site were able to assist us. Pity, would have loved to walk around

never actually open
Jul 2018 • Business
I have been 4-5 times. This place is never open even when one arrives at the posted hours.. I would very much like to visit but is seems haphazardly managed at best.
