  • This museum is where I came to know in 1970s about the "marsh-arabs", and which later led me to my discovery that they were of the ancient ubaidis from Eridu, who reached Mandovia (named by them as Dilmun/Delmon) which was referred to as the Garden of Eden by Moses 2000 years later. The lisbonis and the delhiwalas call my country goa. Global trade began between Eridu and Delmon, for COTTON, as the cashform (they came to find a cashform item, any item that could be traded for meat milk grain) - and that is what led to international trade as soon as manforms got a hyoidbone and could speak - Thats what led to the "mandovian exchange" which civilised the ancient world, long BEFORE THE FLOOD of Noah, giving mankind the highvalues, the essentials of plant-meds, the astrology, the means to calculate for that infobase with the given zero, which led to the wheel which led to the potter's wheel. Astrology given was not about the stars but about the forcefield of the planet using the stars to know of each of the portions of it.
  • Fantastic... People can know more about history of Kuwait..
  • This forgotten relic of Kuwaits past is both delightful and disappointing. Its delightful in that it still hold a lot of wonderful artifacts that pay tribute to Kuwaits past, but is disappointing as most of these treasures are left under the poorest of conditions. A must see for all visitors in Kuwait. Try and stop by the planitarium if you have kids or love astronomy. They have two set viewings one for kids and one for adults. See timing outside. PS: the place is mostly deserted.
  • The museum displays precious things how they seek to discover her old life and endanger the Kuwaitis and the tools they use in hunting and big old ship
