I visited Our Lady of Harissa with my family and enjoyed some quiet time. Church services were on so we could hear the singing. It isnt a place to be loud or allow kids to horse around. People visiting should be respectful as we saw the attendants approach a couple of people who were too loud.

Magnificent underground caverns can be explored by boat and on foot.
I would highly recommend visiting this place, it's like nothing you will have seen before. I loved going on the boat through the cave. It's something that just would not be allowed in the UK due to health and safety. It felt like a little adventure.

The Mall is well set out, clean and has most of what you want. I particularly liked the roof top food court. Great weather to relax and have some lunch or coffee.

mim is a private mineral museum in Beirut, Lebanon. It exhibits more than 1800 minerals, representing some 400 different species from over 70 countries. Created by nature itself, those works of art with their breathtaking aesthetics were formed in earth’s crust millions of years ago. Mr. Salim Edde has built up this collection starting 1997. You can discover pieces originating from a number of renowned collections --both old and more recent-- as well as from the major mining discoveries of our era. The mim collection is now considered to be one of the world's paramount private collections for the variety and quality of its minerals. A didactic circuit, accompanied by screens displaying films and scientific applications of mineralogy, will reveal a world of unsuspected marvels--priceless both from an aesthetic and scientific point of view. Mimodactylus libanensis “mimo”, the fossil of a pterodactyl is featured in a special wing. This one-of-a-kind complete specimen in the Middle-East was found in Lebanon. It is promoted by means of state-of-the-art modern techniques: a hologram, an auto-stereoscopic movie, a full-scale reconstitution and a game “fly with mimo” – an entertainment that delights children and adults. Moreover, mim hosts a thematic exhibition of 200 marine fossils. “Fish’n’Stone” was organized with the collaboration of Mémoire du Temps. Known throughout the world, those fossils were quarried in the Lebanese Mountains. The history of the fossil formation is shown through an animation that submerses you in the marine life – a time capsule that takes you in a journey to some 100 million of years ago.
Didn't know mother nature harbored so many treasures. Before visiting this museum I was only vaguely aware of the existence of minerals. Elements I remembered from chemics lessons at high school. However here a whole new perspective opened up: a huge variety of of over 1500 minerals are exhibited including radioactive ones! What happens in nature under the influence of temperature, pressure, water given time (millions of years).
There is a small collection of fossils as well, mainly from Mount Lebanon. Don't miss it, as the format is very instructive, participatory and pleasant.
Entrance fee 6000 Lebanese pounds (4 US$) Closed on Mondays
Location is some 200m from the National Museum.

A perfectly choreographed body stretch that made me realize how much stress has grown on me
As soon as you walk into the main entrance a comfortable feeling surrounds you.
The water lotus and wooden door separates the loud world from a serene paradise. On the other side, a soothing background music embraces you and already your walk is lighter and the Thai decoration just puts a smile on your face.
I was welcomed by Bob who showed me the different type of massages that the masseuse were certified to do (all their degree were hanging on the wall).
A small list of questions and preferences are asked just before to make sure your experience is as personalized as safe.
This experience just cant get better.
I need to make time for it monthly.

Containing more than 2000 species and over 5000 specimens of marine and wildlife, the Lebanese Marine and Wildlife Museum contains the largest collection of mummified sharks, dolphins, sea turtles, fossils, birds, reptiles, and mammals, in addition to a handful of unknown deep sea creatures from in and around the Mediterranean. The museum is a great destination for kids and families looking to explore the natural wonders of Lebanon. You will first encounter the predators that roam Lebanon's Forests from wolves and hyenas to foxes and badgers. Up next you will enter the forest showcasing all of Lebanon's birds, and after that the desert exhibit, where numerous reptiles dwell. Going even further you will witness the most elegant and mesmerizing of corals, sea stars, and sea shells. Last but not least, your jaws will be on the floor as you come face to face with over 40 shark species, dolphins, and hundreds of fish specimens of which you've never seen in your life, all found in the huge marine exhibit. For its distinguishable work, the museum has been Lebanon's most important Eco group, and works in collaboration with international and regional such as the Shark Trust, Shark Conservation Society, Oceanography De Monaco, and many others in order to study and protect marine and wildlife. The museum aims to spread knowledge and awareness through introducing visitors to the natural wonders of the Mediterranean basin in one single location.
I expected something different. It was boring although my kids enjoyed seeing all these stuffed animals. However the tour was rather expensive and boringI appreciate your feedback, and I'm glad your kids enjoyed it. we're working on adding more exhibits that are friendly and exciting for all ages

Fine collection of old Greek and Roman art. Especially the mozaics, sculptures and reliëfs are of great quality and testament to artistic craftmanship.
The documentary about the history of the museum shows the efforts that were made by generations of Lebanese to preserve their history. They were able to salvage and restore a lot of the damage caused by the civil war in the 1970s and 80s.
The new section about funerary traditions -appropriately on show in the basement- is very worthwhile as well. Especially the colorful frescos in the tomb of Tyre with good explanations give you a good idea of how people imagine life after death.
All exhibits are presented in a modern way keeping text (in Arabic, French and English) to the minimum and giving full scope to study objects from different angles.
Take your time. It took me 3 and half hours to get through most of the collection.
Entrance fee 5000 Lebanese Pounds (just over 3 US$)
