The Sursock Museum is a modern and contemporary art museum located in Beirut.

The expansion was undertaken by architects Jean-Michel Wilmotte and Jacques Abou Khaled. It added four floors beneath the Museum’s garden, resulting in a fivefold increase in the Museum’s total space from 1,500 square meters to 8,500 square meters. The new facilities feature additional exhibition spaces, including an 800-square meter hall dedicated to temporary exhibitions, a 168-seat auditorium, a comprehensive research library, two storage spaces for the Museum’s permanent collection and archives, and a restoration workshop. This architectural revamp provides all the necessary components for the Museum to function as a state-of-the-art cultural institution, and to redefine the presentation of its collection and exhibitions. Additional premises include a glass extension in the Museum’s esplanade, housing its store and café/restaurant.

The Sursock Museum’s mission is to collect, preserve, and exhibit local and international art. Through our collection, archives, exhibitions, and public programs, we aim to produce knowledge on art practices in the region and explore work that reflects on our contemporary moment. Our goal is to support local art production, to provide a platform for encounter and experimentation with art and ideas, and to inform and challenge different audiences in new and unexpected ways.
