The National Museum

The museum’s story goes back to the 1920’s when a museum was needed for archaeological finds. The construction of the museum was begun in 1930 and completed in 1937. When it opened in May 1943 it displayed antiquities from excavations in Beirut, Byblos, Sidon, and Tyre. Further discoveries around the country added more material and over the next three decades the museum represented one of Lebanon’s most important cultural institutions.
