  • I love this place! I got to learn a little more about the history of Kuwait and its culture. However, I was a bit disappointed that some parts of the museum is closed due to some renovations, so I didn't get to fully experience the whole place at its best (Hence the 4 stars). Anyway, I'd still like to come back once they're done.
