    Not what is expected of a national museum.Few visitors, hard to find staff at the planetarium. More to see at Hawalli Othman museum. Combine with visit to Sadu House. Civil ID taken on entry!  more »

    On the day of writing the review did not like that the building around the museum. Inside there are exhibits worthy of attention. But many places are not available for viewing.

    There were constructions but we managed to visit part of it. We enjoyed that part and never regret it

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.
