  • Nice museum! If you are looking something about Islamic culture and culture which was effective Kuwait you can find there!
  • 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.
  • A must place to visit in Kuwait. Has good collection of vintage cars.
  • It's awesome, there guide and historical culture is really good.
  • Not bad, its Under repair it was huge and classy 😻🇰🇼💙💙💙
