Specialty Museum Museum
Visit Al Qurain Martyrs Museum to witness the battlefield during occupation of Iraq. In 1991, Kuwait freedom fighters fought against Iraqi troops; the battle began when occupation troops demanded they leave the house, which they refused. The museum stands for the freedom and the lost lives of freedom fighters. As you walk through the house you can see missing walls, and ruins which haven't changed from the battle. The bottom floor exhibits relics from the battle and tells a story about martyrs who fought for the pride of their nation. Put Al Qurain Martyrs Museum at the forefront of your travel plans using our Kuwait City travel itinerary planner.

  • a must.. well kept, wish the vehicles will be stored in close area though. too much effected by sun exposure

  • Thought provoking house where the Kuwaiti Resistance was based during the first Gulf War. An Iraqi tank is located outside: apparently the one that damaged the house and killed many Kuwaitis inside. A small museum downstairs documents the invasion.

Where to stay in Kuwait City

Few look much further than the peninsula of Kuwait City when looking for accommodations. And with good reason too, with plenty of attractions by the waterfront and a wide range of accommodations located here, including skyscraper hotels, standard chains, basic guesthouses, and charming boutiques. But looking further back from the water can bring up some hidden treasures, with the older (or, at least, less recently renovated) districts still possessing a certain storied charm with their aged look and more traditional markets. You'll find hostels, guesthouses, and a few luxury options to boot.
