“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 26 September 2013

Someone has actually thought about this and set out a wonderful history with fine examples and relics. I really loved the examples of the gold and turquoise jewellery - my two favourite things so to see the craft and work that went into the jewellery was lovely.

“Important Museum with a Unique Style”
Reviewed 23 May 2013

This museum tells an important story in Kuwait. The museum uses models and lightin to progress through the majority of the exhibits. The presentation is perhaps a tad slow, as I prefer to browse some exhbitis at my own pace.

OVerall the museum was quite when I visited but we had no problem being welcomed in. The improtant artifacts and the models tell the incredible history from the early 90s and is important for Kuwait's and visitors to visit.

The only issue was that I had a lot of trouble finding someone who knew where the place was, but once I called them my taxi driver found it.

“Do not miss it.”
Reviewed 21 April 2013

What I liked about this private museum was the chronological journey provided in the different sections of the place. The museum starts with an introduction of the establishment of Kuwait as a trading hub, a land of mixed ethnic origions, and as a maritime and caravn nation. Then an overview of the current Kuwait, followed by the gruesome invasion. Tons of documents, photos, weapons, corners dedicated to the P.O.W.s and the Allied Forces. Overall, this place is a must see attraction.

“Not what I expected”
Reviewed 10 January 2013

This is not quite what I expected. It was nice for the locals and the children especially. They display a nice miniature war showing the stages of the war. As far as actual war artifacts there was only a few items.
