The Nicolas Sursock Museum is a modern and contemporary art museum located in the heart of Beirut. 🏰

It is an architectural gem that exudes timeless elegance and grandeur. Constructed in the late 19th century, the palace reflects a beautiful blend of Ottoman and French architectural styles, showcasing intricate detailing and opulent interiors.

Today, the palace serves as the prestigious Sursock Museum, housing an impressive collection of modern and contemporary art from both Lebanese and international artists. The museum’s diverse exhibits provide a unique cultural experience for visitors, offering a glimpse into Lebanon’s rich artistic heritage.

Situated in the heart of Gemmayzeh, a lively neighborhood known for its narrow streets and trendy cafes, the Sursock Museum stands as a beacon of cultural significance and artistic expression. The area’s historical importance and cosmopolitan atmosphere make it a must-visit destination for both locals and tourists seeking to immerse themselves in Beirut’s rich heritage.

The Sursock Palace’s French background is evident in its architectural style, as it was designed by a French architect during the period when Lebanon was under French Mandate rule. The influence of French aesthetics adds a distinctive charm to the palace’s façade, making it an enchanting sight for those interested in the history and cultural connections between Lebanon and France.

    Temporary closed and undergoing renovations. I still had a chance to visit the gardens of the place. I liked the way the garden is shaped more work can be done though to return it to its original marvel.

    What a beautiful palace!! Unfortunately, it's been damaged by the port explosion, and it's in renovation now . It makes me sad to see this amazing palace in this situation . I'm really in love with this architecture.

    Beautiful palace of the famous family in Beirut. Unfortunately it was destroyed in 2020 with exposure. And now it’s renovating. We were sitting on the garden and suddenly noticed one man who was probably the owner - Roderick Sursock. So if you are lucky enough, you can meet even one of the famous family there ;)

    This place is a masterpiece! A must visit place! A great one! You could see the stories in the fancy paintings. I can’t tell you more than that. You just must visit it! There are also many events that are held there. Keep yourself updated!
