The trip up to the museum is spectacular. You can combine this with a tour to the Cedars and the beautiful holy valley. The museum took my breathe away. Seeing all of his original paintings was such a gift. The room where he is buried and the use of lights and shadows was powerful. Visiting this museum was a special... More

It was magic just to travel there with my Lebanese colleagues and friends. My mom put the "The Prophet" on my bed side table at age 17. It has been there since. Seeing this little house, in this surrounding, with a slight understanding of the historic background was fantastic. Lebanon is to love.

I really enjoyed the book The Prophet. To stand next to the author in his amazing tomb that was made by a local artist, up in such a surreal village perched on the cliff tops of the Kadisha Valley is something I will never forget!

It's a rather small museum but filled with great collection of works by Khalil Gibran as a poet, an illustrator, and a painter. Very well divided. The final room where Gibran had his final rest was contemplative.

it is not a big museum but you will spend a nice time there between the paintings of this artist and poet , its location in the mountains is great and the collection there is really impressive, our perfect guide Natasha from Nakhal tours gave us a thorough history about Gibran

If you love paintings, this is the place to visit. Located in one of the most BEAUTIFUL villages in the middle east (Becharry) it includes lots of paintings to the most famous Lebanese writer and painter Gibran Khalil Gibran
