Absolutely worth the visit. One can enter the world of Gibran and admire many of his paintings while attended by highly knowledgeable staff

Paintings are interesting but I don't see tremendous talent. So many are so similar to each other, he seemed fixated on blurry nude women. Maybe his writings were better. Make sure to see his tomb and the special effects in the basement.

Seeing the drawings, the library, the tomb and the home of the great author of the Profit is really touching. I just enjoyed the 2nd visit in 3 years. The entry fee is a bit high

Don't miss his tomb! 8000 lire entrance fee. There is a small cafeteria and clean bathrooms. The museum is well lit and air conditioned. Small and somewhat somber. Very close to the Cedars of God and worth the stop for about 45 minutes.

I am a fan of Gibran's poetry but really did not like his art. The museum has a mausoleum where Gibran's remains are interred and it is pretty, set amongst flowers and an amazing view of mountain, snow and trees. Worth while if you are...More
