Beirut museum offers a good opportunity for who loves the ancient history: roman, greek, phoenician... Ground floor is for big statues and the first one for small pieces. It has some interactive games/presentation. Its cheap and easy to have a guide for a group (it cost 30$) most of the guides are well trained and have full of information.

The museum has a good diverse collection summing up the rich history of Lebanon, the good: well displayed items and we'll protected (considering that the museum was on the front line during the civil war), the interior of the museum is almost as interesting as the items in display the problem is the lack of sufficient information about the items,...

A nice lay-out and very cheap. Just a shame there isn't more description of what you're looking at. It's large and clean - would perhaps be worth getting a guide if they offer them.

Well, despite the trouble to find parking lots near by and the traffic it self, this Museum is not amazing... But still you should take a time to visit it. Many romans scultures and objects, some statues, ancient tools and a history of lebanon.

Do something most Beirutis have not - visit the National Museum. It's small but perfectly formed, containing unique treasures from the cradle of civilisation. Their story of survival runs right up until the 1970s Civil War. Small, simply laid out, but very impressive and informative, in several languages. It is enjoyably quiet. Good restaurant on the ground floor of building... More

we were breathless when visiting National museum. You can see all the history on one place in the beautiful building with a great acoustic and light.

please note that the number of the national museum in beirut written in your page is wrong. We tried to us ethe number many times and it is not correct. It is a private number and we are disturbing people when we call. I propose to change it as soon as possible.
