Save Beirut cultural heritage : Sursock Museum

Situated at a mere 800 meters from the explosion site, the Sursock museum was severely impacted. The reconstruction works needed to restore the museum to its original state are tremendous due to very high damages.

The Sursock Museum’s Salon Arabe had always been one of the visitors’ favorite spots. Over the past five years, visitors sat on its half-moon benches to read, take a break, or rest.

The Beirut port explosion damaged the fabric and integrity of the benches’ cushions.

To support the Lebanese cultural heritage, we decided to help restore this iconic and folkloric room.

It is our wish that the Sursock museum will be able to reopen its doors soon so that visitors can once again relish this historic place again with refreshed fabrics.
