The Sursock Museum is a splendid example of 19th century Levantine architecture. Impeccably preserved, the magnificent house was one of 30 Italian-style mansions overlooking the Port of Beirut and built by wealthy Greek Orthodox merchants. The interior is an exquisite combination of dark wood paneling, marble floors, and neo- Arabesque antique furnishings. Permanent exhibits at the museum include Japanese-print and Muslim-art displays. Temporary exhibits focus on contemporary Lebanese art.
Admission to the Sursock Museum is free of charge, though you are welcome to pay what you wish for your visit.
