This week, we’re going to the museum!

There is no museum night in Lebanon this year to mark International Museum Day. However, the International Council of Museums (ICOM) today (Wednesday, May 18) announced that museums will be open to amateurs free of charge.

A few days ago, Lebanese Minister of Culture Mohamed Mortada announced that admission to archeological sites and museums in Lebanon would be free from May 18 to 27.

“Visitors to Lebanon will be exempt from entry fees for archeological sites, the National Museum, Museums and the Palatine Palace from May 18 to 27,” the minister said. The decision was made during Museum Day, but also marks National Heritage Day and the 80th anniversary of the Beirut National Museum. According to the ministry, the aim is to “create awareness about the role of museums in community development and to introduce cultural heritage”.
