The museum has beautiful details about his life ,family ,paintings. Nestled under a mountain the house originally belongs to Khalil Gibrans family. Its a beautiful site to be present there and look at the... More

Good experience for the kids to know a little bit about Gibran, too tiny house full of drawings of Gibran. It would by nice if there was a guides to tell a bit about him.

It may be a small place, but it is a must, to feel and really know who Gibran was, the writer, the philosopher, the painter, and the human! The place has so many of his paintings, such pieces of art, the style the genius of his work. Here you feel his presence, you live through the experiences of his life,... More

The museum has some exhibits about his life, bits of furniture and personal belongings. But for the most part it is an art gallery. When entering the museum you will be given a small book which leads you through the exhibits. Audio tours are also available. The art is fantastic, touching on several different styles. There are some works missing... More

My favorite writer is resting in peace among cedar trees and Lebanon's most beautiful valley! It's a very peaceful place where you can see more 400 original paintings and drawings of Gibran. You can also see some of his belongings and private manuscripts. The best part was visiting his well-preserved tomb where you can read what he wanted to be... More
