It is a modern art and contemporary art museum.
The white walls, the arches and small versions of rose windows surprise you because of the building stands out in middle of the dark lanes.
Make sure you visit the place during its opening hours.

I go to Sursock frequently. The exhibitions are of international standard and entrance is free. The location is convenient and special. I recommend the gift shop. It has an excellent selection. Visitors to Beirut can't afford to miss this museum and gallery.

This beautiful museum of modern art is located in a mansion that had been willed by Nicolas Sursock to the Lebanese people to be used as an art museum. One of the original rooms of the mansion has been restored and the rest turned into a beautiful space to display the paintings and other art. I especially loved the Helen Khan exhibit in the basement of the museum. Highly recommend!

This beautifully restored mansion has a large collection representing all types of genres as well as some restored rooms. No matter what your taste in art, this museum makes for a great visit as it has something for everyone. Well lit and displayed, this is a great museum.

Part of our trilogy when visiting the musea in Beirut.
This museum houses some very beautiful contemporary art as well as modern art and art from Lebanese artists. At the time of our visit there was exhibition of Pablo Picasso. Incredible how a museum is located in downtown Beirut.

A must see in Beirut. It’s a free museum (they accept donations) with a permanent collection and a temporary one (there was a Picasso’s one when I went).

Staff are nice and the place is very well organized.

Would have loved to see more descriptions of the pieces, and the closed parts to be open.

This is a small but interesting art museum, in a gorgeous building - the building is as much what you are seeing as the art. There was a small Picasso show when we went, which was an added bonus.

When we visited all the Lebanese history places, the visit of this museum of contemporary art is a surprise. The collections are well highlighted and the diversity takes us to another Lebanon always in adequacy with its history and its present time.
The basement dedicated to Baalbek is rich and gives a thorough study of the history of the Bekaa.
To do with big and small.
