MACAM – Modern And Contemporary Art Museum is the first contemporary art museum in Lebanon dedicated to preserving and promoting art.  A large factory compound on a hilltop overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, has been transformed by an independent nonprofit organization into a dynamic cultural hub.
The permanent exhibition, Panorama of Sculpture, displays 500 sculptures by ninety renowned artists. The exhibition presents a century of sculpting in Lebanon starting from 1920 with Joseph Hoyeik, the Basbous brothers, Hussein Madi till contemporary installation art by Nada Sehnaoui, Mario Saba, Ghassan Ghazal. MACAM is a creative hub, it held in three years five art contests and three superb retrospective exhibitions.
MACAM Educational Museum - Creative Experience for childrenWe provide highly engaging programs and workshops to help foster creative development.We believe art appreciation and cultural exposure is important to be experienced from an early age as the values and benefits are understood more intrinsically.
Get involved, support MACAM to reach out to public schools and NGOs working with underprivileged children to experience creativity by visiting the museum and getting immersed in workshops.  Creative expression helps children release tension and guide them to express their feelings in a peaceful manner.
