American University of Beirut Museum reviews
A group of friends accompanied my wife and me to this museum while on campus at the American University of Beirut. I’m not one for museums, but found this one very interesting!

Interesting ancient middle east exhibits. A very neat, peaceful museum in the AUB campus. Free of charge with a nice shop.

This museum is admittedly dwarfed by the National Museum but if it was in any other city around the world it would be a prized possession. The artifacts and sculptures are displayed chronologically. The amount of glass were and ceramic were in good condition is amazing. Very good descriptions and collection. One is not overwhelmed. Be sure and visit the Geological dusplays at the adjacent Department of Geology. Both museums are free of charge. Located on the verdant grounds of the historic American University of Beirut.
