Description

Sursock Museum, which is officially known as Nicolas Sursock Museum, is a modern art museum in Beirut, Lebanon.  The museum building itself is stunning, especially when viewed lit up at night. It is located in the historic street known as Rue Sursock (or Sursock Street) in the well known and enigmatic Achrafieh district of Beirut. The street is something in itself, home to other mansions that were built in the 18th century by Beirut's most prominent families such as the Sursocks and the Bustroses, it is worth a quiet wander.

The museum began its life in 1961 with an exhibit of works of contemporary Lebanese artists, setting a precedent for many cultural events in Beirut. It is currently displaying the works of both Lebanese and international artists. Much of the work is broadly modern art but the museum's permanent collection includes Japanese engravings and Islamic art, with good descriptions to help open the subject up to newcomers. You’ll find also that the staff are knowledgeable and without some of the stuffiness that you often find in such galleries.
