Good antiquities museum, which lots of exhibits spread across two floors. About 10-20 minutes' drive from Hamra, but worth the journey.

This museum is a must when visiting Beirut and you really don't have to be a history buff to enjoy the museum Ask at the ticket counter for a free iPad with detailed explanations about the artefacts.
The museum shop is really good with a lot of good souvenirs - cheap and expensive.

The Museum has a unique and extremely rich collection of artifacts from Phoenician, Greek, Roman, Byzantine and medieval periods, such as the sarcophagus of Ahiram or the mosaic of Europe riding the bull. Not only it exhibits fascinating historical objects, but it also is a part of Lebanon's history. Calm, Cozy and elegant, it is definitely worth a visit!

This is one of the most amazing museums I have ever been to. All artifacts are from Byblos, nothing replicated. It's not a huge museum, and it's not small, but it is a must see, especially if you went to Byblos.

We visited the Museum after having visited Baalbeck, Byblys, and Anjar. It completed the missing pieces of some of these ancient sites, and reaffirmed the sequence of the history for us. The museum is well designed, and pieces are beautifully displayed. The video on how the pieces were preserved throughout the wars amazed us! There is no cafe, but across the road is a Restaurant called 'Mum and I' where you can sample some delicious local food. Enjoy your day... We did !
