It's really worth to see it to understand better history of Lebanon during last ~40 years. Beautiful place, amazing gardens and flowers mixed with guns and tanks, what makes all this more impressive. And the way to Mleeta trough mountains is also very beautiful.

I have visited Mleeta Hezbollah museum on both my visits to Lebanon. I will also visit whenever I go there. An outstanding layout with exceptional views. But what truly makes this place worthy of visit is when you know that this is the same place where true men forgo all their attachments to this world and made a stand against... More

This is a former Hezbollah base in the remote mountains of Bekaa valley that has been converted into a museum of first world quality. From the artfully laid out debris of Israeli tanks and other weapons captured or destroyed during the last war in 2006 to the underground bunker and kitchen that was used by the warriors to take on...

I didn't find the place in lonely planet but we were really fortunate since our cabbie cum guide advised us to visit this place. The place will remind you the days when Lebanon was under Israeli Occupation. You will really feel how strongly those Lebanese martyrs fought and shed their blood to free their motherland from Israeli invaders

If you hear the enchanter saying "I am the enchanter have been enchanted," then she must have visited this enchanting place. It is Mleeta Landmark and museum about the Lebanese resistance that fought the Israeli occupation and deterred it away from its homeland. The place is truly remarkable and enriched with the necessary information that will mirror the truth of... More

The experience of visiting Hezbollah theme park is beyond words. If one has to understand the present Lebanese history, then its a "must visit" site. It transports one back to the 80's when the Resistance forces fought with Israelis to push them out. The thoughts and emotions that have gone in designing the place- be in architecture or in landscaping,... More

This was an eye opening site...and very informative. This basically used to be an old base for Hezbollah (as I understand it). You can see where the resistance fighters lived, slept, remnants of battle badges (Israeli tank, helmets, etc.). Words really can't do justice nor can photos. It was surreal visiting this place. We hired a private car in Beirut... More

Mleeta is a brilliantly designed war museum depicting the history of of the resistance who fought against the Israeli army in southern Lebanon in 1982. The site is where the resistance fighters actually lived and fought, and you can look at the surrounding hills and imagine the battles that are depicted in the displays. There is a film shown in...
