Sitting atop a hill in the Beirut neighborhood of Achrafieh, the Sursock Museum is a palatial former residence that was transformed into a cultural museum in the 1960s. After several closures and a massive series of renovations, the Sursock Museum has reopened its doors as a modern celebration of the marriage of art and culture in the region.

The Sursock Museum is now outfitted with a gift shop, several gallery spaces of varying size, a research library focusing on local cultural history, a 168-seat auditorium and a museum workshop boasting climate-controlled storage.

The stunning, mesmerizing look of the museum is sure to entice guests in, while the sophisticated dining experience will keep them coming back.
