  • 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
  • Good place for kuwait treditional handmade shoping.
  • One of the last preserved pre-oil era dwellings in Kuwait and a centre for Bedouin art.
  • authentic and lovely heritage place

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.
