Forget the museum, just come and enjoy the gardens and the house. The gardens captivate you the moment you walk through the gate. They are peaceful, having the ability to shut out the noise of the city and somehow cool the air. The house is so beautiful, inside and out. But especially inside. Carved wood, marble floors, stained glass -... More

You cannot imagine what you can find in this usually empty private museum next to the UK embassy. In an converted old mansion surrounded by actual Roman columns, a small fee paid to a sleepy guard lets you in to wander round rooms full of things like Heidi Klum's $10m diamond-studded bra and the world's second-biggest diamond, worth a gazillion...

This is a wonderful place... the building itself and the interiors. The collections are wonderful too. The glass is probably one of the finest collections that we have ever encountered. The jewellery is totally bling! The place is very difficult to find, but ask for the British Embassy and it is almost next door. The grounds looked lovely but as... More

The Robert Mouawad Private Museum collection and building are worth a visit when in Beirut. While the $20 is a little steep, the collection boast an interesting mix of antiquities and jewelry. As well as Lebanon's first flag. Mouawad is known for creating stunning diamond encrusted Victoria Secret lingerie, a few of which are on display. The Excelsior diamond, one... More

Found the building eventually, tucked down a side road but we could not find and entrance to the museum. The only doors we found were well and truly locked and there was no one in sight to provide any assistance. Warning - taxi drivers understand museum to mean National Museum, whatever name you put in front of it.

The mansion belongs Mouwad family, a well known name in the fashion industry and the designer of the million dollars bras for Victoria Secret The garden is a peace of heaven in the heart of a busy city If you like going to museums then this one should be on the top if your list

Packed with wonderful objects in a beautiful building. The centre piece was a spectacular giant diamond. Well worth a visit when in Beirut assuming you can navigate past the military security check point and barbed wire on the street outside.
