The Edward Nassar Museum houses the largest Roman and Greek coin collection in Lebanon.

There are 300 vintage gold and silver timepieces, a worldwide stamp collection and a large assortment of historical books and early illustrated Bibles. Also on view are manuscripts and autographs by luminaries from history like Field Marshal Bernard Law Montgomery and Charles de Gaulle. Other displays include exquisite Chinese porcelain and African art—ivory and ebony sculptures—as well as Roman and Greek archaeological treasures.
