The American university campus is a beacon of beauty in the middle of the city. Visit the museum and its boutique offering a variety of beautiful handicrafts and accessible jewelry and gifts.

Of course it’s worth to go there and see the Zaha Hadid building. Bring your ID or travel documents otherwise you won’t get in for security reason

American university of Beirut is a great place to wander around when you are near Hamra neighborhood. Totally worth it and very green! We did not go inside of the buildings
