  • Pottery House is a historic house which has been turned into a Museum and cultural center. It's a great place to spend your free time, especially those who are interested in history and culture.

  • For each country I visit, I usually end up milling around old market places and shops looking some treasures local to the area to buy like wicker baskets and weaves. Sabu House is so far the only plac...  more »

  • 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
  • A gem (in the rough but still a gem) in the heart of Kuwait City. It is a cultural institution and museum and they have an absolutely wonderful gift shop! A cute little cafe opened up there a few years ago too!
  • Well maintained for a historic site. Good place to take children for fun and education or for a school trip. They also have a cozy cafe to sit n enjoy the view over looking the palace n sea. Unfortunately closed on Fridays which is a public holiday
  • New venue with great restaurants and a musical fountain show every half hour from 6:00 pm

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.
