Every stone of this 3-story medieval castle was individually hand-crafted by Moussa. The castle exhibits artifacts, clothing, antique weapons, and more. You can see wax sculptures act out scenes from a typical 19th-century Lebanese village life. I highly recommend this place when visiting Beiteddine!

It was a really nice experience with learning about the Arabic culture. The view from the castle is really beautiful and also the castle itself. It costs 10 dollar per person but it's really worth it.

There are lots of animatronics showing you how life was in Lebanon through the years. It's a bit dusty and cheesy but it was fun. It's much bigger than it looks from the outside and you follow through the different hallways down two levels. There...More
