Much in the same spirit as its exclusive neighbourhood of the Beirut Central District, the Robert Mouawad Private Museum pays tribute to the cultural riches of the past with a reinvigorated flair. This palatial private residence, built in 1892, was acquired by the Robert Mouawad Group and transformed into a private museum to preserve the legacy of the region’s antiquities and that of Mouawad’s exquisite jewelry.
In renovating the structure, the Robert Mouawad Group has remained true to the building’s heritage and traditions. Secluded from the outside world, the walled museum is set in idyllic grounds which combine exotic greenery with statues and columns from bygone eras.
The restored early 20th century facade of the museum gives off an immediate romanticism and charm of yesteryear. Once inside, discreet state-of-the-art technology brings the artefacts to life, creating a dazzling showcase of rare facets of history. On display are a wealth of books, ceramics, statues, pottery, ancient weapons, carpets, luxury jewelry, objets d>art and rare precious stones, each weaving their own historical tale in this magical setting.
