Walk a Mile in Someone Else's Shoes
Oct. 2019
This extraordinary museum gives the average non-Arab visitor a completely new perspective on the Lebanese-Israeli conflicts. The museum consists of a large indoor gallery with captured Israeli booty. Then there is an outdoor section with captured Israeli military equipment (tanks, planes, etc). Next comes an outdoor exhibit with tunnels and fox holes. Finally, there is the HQ and the memorial site.

Although the exhibits may be a bit one sided, it is a fresh perspective on what nationhood means to Lebanon. The museum won't change anyone's mind about the Middle East situation, but it might help you give a new way to look at things.

Do your best to ditch the local museum guide. The local guides hammer you with anti-Israeli propaganda. The exhibits speak for themselves. Let them speak to you.

Very interesting

Big carpark with little funfair next door with ziplines.
Luckily we had Ali as a guide who told us the history of the site.
Very interesting to see and well laid out.
The tunnels through the mountain are big enough to walk through standing up unlike the chuchi tunnels in Vietnam.
The tunnels also showed the soldiers quarters.
The entrance fee was low (cant remember circa 4000 lbp), and the guides are volunteers.

Interesting day out
Sep. 2019 • Couples
Visited a few days ago on day trip to south Lebanon from Beirut
Museum is very well laid out with plenty to see from the wars over the years with israel
Entry was 7000LL and upon entering you get a rundown on the site from a well informed guide
You then get a video introduction from Hassan nasrallah before you can view the outdoor museum which consists of captured Israeli tanks/guns etc etc.
You can also view bunkers that were used in hezbollah attacks
The whole place is perched on the side of a hill that offers stunning unobstructed views of south Lebanon
There is also a little snack bar there and a hezbollah souvenir shop
If you find yourself in south Lebanon it is certainly worth an hour of your time to visit and try to understand the war of the south , I would certainly recommend a visit

Clearly one sided propaganda, but very interesting
Aug. 2019
This place was fascinating. It's a well done, well-presented museum/monument, even if it is obvious propaganda. Hezbollah calls themselves "the resistance" and "the revolution" and "freedom fighters". Our docent neglected to mention the embassy bombings, kidnappings, and other acts of terror they have perpetrated. It's in a beautiful, dramatic location, with great views. In the parking lot there's a small market with local artisans. Definitely worth a visit.

Great place brave people

It was a dream to visit this place and talk with the people that administrate it.
They are very well informed and qualified on area’s issues.
They have clear ideas and not mixed up.
They know what they want how to reach it and what to scarify on the way.
The road from Beirut is very easy, the museus of the site very well organised and the location is very nice.

In memory of all the souls lost at the hands of monsters.

In 2006 Israel attacked Lebanon, again. They fired many cluster bombs and many phosphorous bombs into small Lebanese towns. I wish there were rights in this world to protect people. No nations rights should be above that of any humans rights, but then again, even the term "human rights" is a made up fantasy. This is a great museum dedicated to resistance.

best/hassle free way to mleeta is the road access from saida/sidon. we tried to drive from baalbeck the day before but was turned back by police because one portion of the road was too close to israel, and thus needed a special permit.

Interesting perspective
Apr. 2019 • Solo
As late as 2017, this area in Southern Lebanon couldn't be visited without a Lebanese Army security pass. The site was formerly the main base of Hezbollah during the Israeli occupation. The base has been relocated and what is left is a fascinating small outdoor museum of actual captured Israeli weaponry including tanks and a Sikorsky helicopter downed by Hezbollah. There's even a tombstone written in Hebrew rejoicing in the fall of Israel. The tour begins with a 15 minute film narrated by Nasrallah, head of Hezbollah. The tour ends with a walk through a tunnel leading to living space where they stayed for months while Israel bombed them. Along the way there are mannequins depicting Hezbollah fighters in different defensive situations. The walk down to the tunnel is down many steps but worth doing. Definitely a must see.
