Get out of the city and explore Lebanon on this private full-day guided tour. Depart from your Beirut hotel in a private vehicle and make your way to Jeita Grotto. In the company of a guide, admire the limestone cliffs of the grotto from a boat. Continue to Byblos and learn about its history as you explore the old castle and souks. After lunch, pause in Harissa and ride a cable car to a statue of the Virgin Mary. Snap photos of the panoramic view.

unassuming but makes you think, not much of a museum more a building that you can look in. Personally I think they could do so much more with the building turning it in to a real reminder of what happened, telling the history. Green Line/Damascus Street just a very busy road now. I love history so wanted so much more.

Set up as a museum of Lebanon´s troubled recent history (if I understand it right), but seems to be open only for special events. Please make it available for the general public !

This museum was a real eye opener for me and I found it quite harrowing. The building is virtually destroyed and covered in bullet holes. When I went in April 2019 it had exhibition of photos. On the ground floor were photos of people before the Civil War. Then on the second floor were lots of pictures from the actual Civil War. There is no charge to visit the museum. It is about 15 minute walk from Mohammed Al Amin Mosque. The museum is on the way to National Museum. I am not too sure of the opening hours, but definitely worth a visit.

The Barakat Building built in the 20s, was the center point of what used to be the demarcation line, or Green line where Different Lebanese factions fought. A renovation was done in a way to keep it as a witness and reminder of the painful memories of war. The Building was saved by activists in the 90. Hope Lebanese will remember this painful lesson
