ABOUT Sursock Museum


The Nicolas Ibrahim Sursock Museum is a modern and contemporary art museum in the center of Beirut first opened in 1961, with a mission to collect, preserve, and exhibit local and international art. .

With over ten exhibitions a year – ranging from thematic group shows to solo shows by emerging artists – and a diverse public program of talks, screenings, and family workshops, the Museum aims to provide a platform for encounter and experimentation with art and ideas, and to inform and challenge different audiences and communities in new and unexpected ways. .
