THE MUSEUM OF LIBYA

FIT FOR A KING

The building housing this hi-tech museum was built by the Italians for their governor and later used by King Idris. After the revolution it was renamed The People's Palace and you will find it marked as such on maps of Tripoli. (Look a couple of blocks south-east from Green Square.)


It is great for kids because many of the displays 'do' things such as the virtual statues which rotate. It's not exactly interactive because you are assigned an Arabic-speaking guide who presses the buttons for you, but it is to be hoped that by adopting this strategy the displays will remain in working order.


On entry you have to put your bags in a locker, but you are allowed to bring in your camera and there is no charge for taking photos. There's a coffee shop with terrace, clean toilets, and free parking.


Open from 8.00 - 14.00, closed Fridays and Mondays.
