Wow - what a collection! I definitely wasn’t expecting something so impressive from such a modest entrance to the exhibition. The specimens are beautifully displayed and the lighting really highlights their uniqueness and brilliance! Super impressive and definitely worth a visit if you’re in Beirut and a bit of a geek 🤓
My host in Beirut recommended a visit to the MIM after the nearby National Museum. Wow! I am glad I had time. What a stunning collection or minerals from around the world. This once private collection is now on display for all of us to experience. I have a new appreciation for geology after seeing this. It is a very unique museum and added to my glowing impression of Beirut.
