  • Took some persevering even to find the museum - signage is poor to non- existent. Head behind Sadhu House and across the car park (building in progress) towards the large building in the right. Access...  more »

  • 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.
  • Not bad, its Under repair it was huge and classy πŸ˜»πŸ‡°πŸ‡ΌπŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™
  • Still under construction but it's nice place you will like it
  • We take our guests to show them our heritage museums .. I was disappointed really.. need to take care of such places they are representing us
  • After reaching the place, we found it was closed due to renovation works. This information has to be updated in the google maps.

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.
