Mirror House, Kuwait City

4.4
#2 of 13 in Museums in Kuwait
Home of married artists Khalifa Qattan and Italian-born Lidia, Mirror House boasts radiant and colorful mosaics from inside out. The house exterior sharply contrasts with the suburban neighborhood, while its interior mosaics depict epic themes of earth, universe, sea, and knowledge. According to Lidia, she began creating the mosaics when her daughter broke a mirror while her husband was away. This practice, which her husband loved, turned into an obsession. Today, each room is covered with mosaics from floor to ceiling. An art gallery upstairs features works by both artists, some of which are for sale. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Kuwait City holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Mirror House and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • This place has to be seen to be believed. Give yourself about 3 hours and hand yourself over to Lydia for an amazing tour. It's not to everyone's taste, but don't judge until you've been. She is an amazing hostess and orator.
  • What an amazing place to come. Lidia and her lifelong passion makes this place truly special. Furthermore, the stories behind her late husband’s art add depth to the visit. Lidia’s daughter is also a wonderful hostess and supporter of her mother’s vision.
  • Hidden gem in the city of Kuwait! Family run museum with interesting stories from Kuwait history to Space travel. Very warm welcoming with 2 hour tour which flew by so quick, because it was so interesting! Definetely worth a visit.
  • Mrs. Lidia is a wonderful woman. She is passionate and dedicated to her work. It shows in the way she presents her and her husband's art. We spent a delightful couple of hours in her company; we started with tea and cake and we ended in a galaxy.
