This imposing white-fronted mansion with grand stairways in the heart of the Lebanese capital was built in 1912 by the aristocrat and art aficionado Nicolas Sursock, who decided to mix traditional Lebanese architecture with Venetian influences for his unusual residence. Before he died in 1952, 'he surprised everyone, including his family, by deciding that the house would be donated to the Lebanese people and would be transformed into a museum,' its director, Zeina Arida, tells EPA-EFE. Although for years the then president of the Mediterranean country, Camille Chamoun, used the building to house distinguished guests such as kings and heads of state, the pressure exerted by the Sursock family translated in 1961 into the fulfillment of Nicolas' last will. Decades later, between 2007 and 2015, the building underwent a major renovation and expansion as part of a late reconstruction project after the Lebanese civil war (1975-1990). The historic first floor survived a century intact as Sursock had designed it, but on 04 August 2020, just five minutes after the museum closed its doors, it was rocked by the shock wave that swept through several Beirut neighborhoods. causing more than 200 deaths and 6,500 wounded.
