  • This a great place that is full of culture and heritage. I enjoyed the weaving demonstration as well as the information that was provided.
  • One of the must-see venues if you are interested in local heritage. They hold many exhibitions and functions as well.
  • I was disappointed with items for sale. Mostly modern items at bazaar and quality not nice.
  • Such a great center that preserves heritage and culture. It has a coffee place that is said to be one if a kind. Their gift shop is full of wonderful souvenirs from all kinds.
  • Good comparing to other museums in Kuwait but need more attention to be a better touristic place
