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

Books are available for purchase, including his most famous work, "The Prophet." You will come away... More

The museum itself is an amazing place to visit in a beautiful location. Gibran was perhaps a poet first then an artist and this is reflected in the paintings displayed. They are often naive and Gibran displays what seems to me, a very American spiritualism. The paintings are nevertheless fascinating and the museum is well worth visiting.
