There’s a new addition to Lebanon’s rich list of museums; the Nabu Museum located on the coast of the Mediterranean North of Lebanon. The museum was named after the Mesopotamian patron god of literacy and “offers an exceptional permanent collection of Bronze and Iron Age artifacts representing Roman, Greek, Byzantine, Phoenician and Mesopotamian, and contemporary Lebanese cultures, in addition to rare manuscripts and ethnographic material”.
What’s exceptional about this museum is its architecture which was designed with Iraqi-Canadian artist Mahmoud Obaidi and Iraqi artist Dia Azzawi. Not only does Nabu Museum offer an exceptional permanent collection of Bronze and Iron Age artifacts, but it also promotes a creative atmosphere for regional artists and offers them a comfortable working space.
