Archaeological Museum

The AUB Archaeological Museum is the third oldest museum in the Near East, after Cairo and Constantinople. The initial donation for the construction of a science building to be named Post Hall was given by Morris Jessup, in gratitude to George E. Post, professor of botany and surgery, for curing him. The Museum opened in 1902.
