The Magical World of MIM museum Beirut

Did you visit The MIM ?

Under the St Joseph University, this atmospheric and beautifully designed museum presents an extraordinary collection of  exquisitely selected and presented minerals.

The MIM Museum is named after the twenty-fourth letter of the Arabic alphabet – the equivalent of the Latin letter M.

Well because it is the first letter of the Arabic words for museum, minerals and mines! Coincidentally, the same words begin with the letter M in English and in French too (the three officially spoken languages in Lebanon).

Mim Museum is one of the world’s most important private collection of minerals.
