National Museum of Beirut


The National Museum of Beirut currently exhibits 1300 artifacts from its collection of approximately 100,000 objects.
The museum's collection consists of:

1) Prehistory ( 1M. 3200 B.C.)
Some million years ago, the first inhabitants of Lebanon settled along its coast.
Their tools were produced in large numbers during the Middle (150.000-40.000 B.C.) and Upper Palaeolithic (40.000-18.000 B.C.)

2) Bronze Age (3200 B.C.-1200 B.C.)
The Bronze Age starts a new era with the development of urban civilization and the emergence of writing.

3) Iron Age ( 1200 B.C.- 333 B.C.)
During this period, and after an era of autonomy, the city-states of the area came under Assyrian, Babylonian and Persian hegemony
