The Center for Lebanese Heritage

Certain factors in Lebanon’s history have adversely affected the country’s cultural heritage. Mismanagement has led to the loss of items, the obliteration of their Lebanese character, or their dispersal in and outside the homeland. The Center for Lebanese Heritage was set up to locate and restore such objects, making a difference in the preservation of Lebanon’s unique cultural heritage.

The Center also maintains a busy schedule of activities. Browse through the latest events it has hosted.
