Mirror House, Kuwait City

4.3
#2 of 13 in Museums in Kuwait
Art Museum Museum
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.

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.
