  • Lidia the owner & creator of this amazing so called " The house of mirrors" or "Mirror house". It's literally a mind blowing experience to watch art at every corner of the house. Each art piece symbolizes meaningful things in the field of arts. As we visit the house the narration of every arts by the artist keeps you holding to know the inspiration she had for her work. Amazing pieces of art and beautifully maintained.
  • Superb place for tourists. It's a place to be with your friends and family. There will be a women who will guide you to inside and you will enjoy the time. Historic place. The women will take a booking or reservation from you or your relatives. She have a phone number. Which I uploaded the picture. If you call her for booking. Call before 2 days before going there. And make sure to take some friends there to enjoy more properly specially if you are planning on something for visiting a historic or educational tour. And the architecture was great who created the unique design which is fully created by glass. Glass art is full of this house outside and inside as well. The women who will guide you for the full time you'll stay there. And she will help you specially.
  • It is an amazing place. Not only consist of arts, but this place is also so philosophical. Madam Lidya herself brought us to the tour. And she explain about the making process and the stories behind in each rooms. Such a nice experience for me and my friends.
  • There is truly nothing like this masterpiece. This is a must for anyone, whether you are an art lover or movie buff, this house takes you somewhere magical within yourself. So glad I came across such a treasure piece, thank you Qattan family for sharing your intrinsic creation with the World! Tours are by appointment only**
