Museum of Lebanese Prehistory
Inaugurated in 2000 on the occasion of 125th anniversary of USJ, the Museum of Lebanese Prehistory is the culmination of a more global project carried out in collaboration with the Institute of Oriental Prehistory of the French National Council for Scientific Research (CNRS) and the Louvre Museum.
MIM: The Minerals Museum by Salim Eddé
The Minerals Museum (MIM) was inaugurated in October of 2013 in the Campus of Sports and Innovation on Damascus Street, in conjunction with the celebration of USJ’s 3rd centennial celebrations. It is the first of its kind in Lebanon and the Middle East, and it has 1400 pieces that Salim Eddé has been collecting since 1997. This collection has over 300 kinds of minerals coming from 61 countries.
The museum’s halls are equipped with state of the art technologies such as touch screens, audiovisual media, and facades specially designed for the display of radioactive stones, as well as precious and semi-precious stones and other pieces of scientific and aesthetic value.
