What visitors say about MACAM (Modern And Contemporary Arts Museum)
This art center is outside Beirut and depending on the traffic it can take you an hour to get there. The beautiful space is run by a Lebanese-German couple and they have a large art collection that consists of Lebanese modern and contemporary art work. They run workshops for kids and adults to make their own art – mostly from recycles materials. We went for the Jocelyne Saab which was fascinating. Te couple who runs the space is very welcoming and might give you a tour to explain more about their purpose. The whole space is in the mountains in an old crayon factory which gives it a distinct character.
