Banque du Liban Museum

Museum in Beirut

Banque du Liban Museum is an offbeat little stop for a change of pace. The collection includes coins dating back to 500 BC; some of the retired Lebanese banknotes are fascinating and artistic. There are also few diverting games, including one in which you can see how much your body weight is worth in gold. Call ahead for a private tour with the knowledgeable, multilingual Madame Salwa.
