Hall of Fame

  • historical museum

Zouk Mosbeh, Keserwan district

Lebanon's Hall of Fame Museum, located in Zouk Mosbeh, breaks the standard wax museum mold in a few odd ways. First of all, its figures are made of silicone, not wax, enabling animatronic components that allow figures to move and “speak.” Besides, it’s the closest one can get to brushing shoulders with a slew of current, former, or perhaps soon-to-be-overthrown Arab leaders. Alongside an animatronic Saddam Hussein offering a handshake and the former Iraqi Information Minister Mohamad Said al-Sahhaf denying that U.S. troops had breached Iraqi borders in 2003, the museum features deposed Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak holding court with Saudi King Abdullah and deceased leader of the Palestinian Authority Yasir Arafat.
