  • good clean place with small cinema inside for children, place for parking, many types of Deseret insects and many containers for different types of Gulf fish  more »
  • Considered the best war museums and displays the history of Kuwait, deep in relation to the sea. Worth a visit during your free time. The kids absolutely love it, especially the creatures and their things.

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.
