Period: 1902 - 1938
During this period, the Museum acquired collections from Lebanon, Syria, Cyprus, Egypt, Palestine, Iraq and Iran. The geographical variety of the collections' provenances distinguished the AUB Museum as a regional one in opposition to the National Museum. Today, the Museum provides a unique overview of the Near East from the Early Stone Age through to the Islamic Period.
