BEIRUT — To mark World Heritage Day on April 18, outgoing Lebanese Minister of Culture Mohammad Mortada announced Wednesday that entrance to the National Museum of Beirut will be free from April 19 to 25.
Visitors will be able to enter between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m.
On Tuesday, Mortada announced free entry on the same dates to the archaeological sites of Baalbeck and Anjar in the Bekaa Valley; Sour, South Lebanon; and Jbeil, Mount Lebanon.
He also called on Lebanese people to visit, either virtually in person, the Rachid Karami International Fair in Tripoli and Wadi Qannoubine, both in North Lebanon.
