The museum, with glass walls granting a spectacular panoramic view of Mount Lebanon, is a place that protects, preserves and presents a growing collection dedicated to the Lebanese emigrant. - UNESCO-IOM Migration Museums Initiative UNESCO-IOM Migration Museums Initiative The current trend in the development of ‘migration museums’, named differently worldwide, is an interesting phenomenon, as it may contribute to the creation of a new and multiple identity, at an individual and collective level. Like the United States with Ellis Island, Australia, Canada, and more recently the European countries – e.g. France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland and the United Kingdom – have been creating such venues to facilitate transmission between generations as well as encounters between migrants and the host populations, by telling their personal story. While these initiatives also serve the duty to remember, they seem to have three main objectives: acknowledge, integrate and build awareness. Acknowledge: The contributions made by migrants to their host societies; the diversity and wealth of the origin cultures and; the right to a dual-belonging.
