Several galleries and museums have been destroyed or severely damaged in an explosion and fire in the Lebanese capital on Tuesday.

Two powerful explosions in the port of Beirut on Tuesday night killed more than 70 people and injured about 4,000. The tragedy caused significant damage to the already fragile city and also wreaked havoc on its cultural life. Major art galleries, including the Marfa Gallery, located near the port, and the Galerie Tanit have been completely destroyed. The branch of the Opera Gallery, located in the city center overlooking the waterfront, was destroyed.

Also were affected Galerie Sfeir-Semler in the uninhabited quarter and Galerie Janine Rubeiz in the prestigious Rausche district. The Nicol Sursock Museum of Contemporary Art, which was the center of Beirut's cultural life in the 1960s and reopened in 2015 after costly restoration, is badly damaged. “We cannot afford to buy new glass for skylights, windows and exit doors. We have no funds, complains the director of the museum, Zeyna Arida, who was in the building when the explosion took place. Fortunately, none of the employees of the institution was injured.
