This space is an interesting gathering of items that explain Gibran's journey. The space is very organic, created amidst rocks in a grotto like environment. The items are displayed in a very basic simple way. Some audio guides are available to enjoy the museum. An overall fair thing to do when going to the Cedars, as well as you're not... More

I absolutely loved walking through this museum. There is a fresh water stream that runs through the first room. I was parched from the walk there and I felt it was a godsend to drink that pure water surrounded by my favorite poets paintings and writings. Just beautiful. A must see.

If you're Gibran fan or not, I recommend you to go and visit his museum and his house which is next to the church in Bcharreh. I honestly enjoyed the museum so much; it has all of his paintings hung on the wall with a description of the paintings from its theme to the date it was painted. Moreover, you... More

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

The Gibran Museum is quite amazing in that they have created and exhibition of every facet of Gibran's life, from his bedroom furnirture to dozens of his paintings and sketches. This is a must-see for any tour of northern Lebanon.

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.
