Beirut’s Banque du Liban Museum (Musée de la Banque du Liban) opened in 2010 to chart the story of currency throughout history and to increase public awareness of the role of the central bank. After its establishment, the Banque du Liban (which means Bank of Lebanon and is sometimes shortened to BDL) created the nation's fourth currency.
Exhibitions within the museum display banknotes and coins dating as far back as the Phoenician era, while others highlight the current Lebanese pound as a stable monetary system. It may not sound like it, but this is a family attraction that even children can enjoy, with money puzzles and the opportunity to calculate your weight in gold. You can also design your own banknote and get your picture printed onto it.
A visit here is best enjoyed combined with a trip to the National Museum, the Mim Mineral Museum and a walk down Hamra Street on a day tour of Beirut museums. If not arriving as part of a tour, the museum can be reached by taxi or by foot.
Address: Masraf Lubnan St., Beirut, Lebanon
