Kuwaiti Museums - Part I

I have been wanting to write about Kuwaiti museums for long time. True, there aren't many of them but it is useful to know about what we have. I have not found official sites for all of them but provided some links.

I am still gathering more information on the other ones. Feel free to post comments about the other museums you know about so I can post about them in Part II

Some interesting info in ur blog. Thanks.

you may want to consider submitting some of your nice posts to Q8igg.com. I already did for a couple of yours, I like them.

Bashar said...

There is Dar Al-Athar Al-Islamiya as well if you like to include it.

See also if Q8Ba7th would help when you search only inside Kuwait.

Ansam said...

Thanks :-) I appreciate it.
Also thanks for the link, because I listed Islamic Art Museum without their official website. I will try to fix it

The Dar Al Athar collection was on display at the National Museum until the invasion of 1990.
It has not been possible to see that collection since then so the information is a bit leading. There is nothing much to see at the National Museum except for the Model Kuwaiti town they have built.

OK Thanks :-)
