  • The part I most recommend is the exposure to wax dolls about what life was like in the country in the past.

  • A museum that tells the history of Kuwait and its impact on the Islamic civilization as it tells the history and heritage of Kuwaitis of the previous era through the presentation of cultural heritage and way of life and simulates houses

  • The Kuwait National Museum and Planetarium Complex is located on Arabian Gulf Street near the National Assembly. It is presently under renovation and except for some exhibits and Kuwait Heritage Section, everything else like the Dhow Boats and the planetarium are closed. Entry is free and it is open on all days from 8.30 AM to 12.30 PM and 4.30 PM to 8.30 PM. Closed only on Friday Mornings. The Kuwait Heritage Section is very well presented and gives a complete idea of the Culture and traditions of Kuwait. It takes about 1.5 Hours to see this and is well worth the visit. Hope the rest of the museum opens soon...
  • Good Place for School going kids. Free entry we need to submit one persons Civil ID for security purpose. Mesopotamian culture related Ancient Kuwaiti Ornaments, Equipments etc... which are displayed in Heritage village part. The heritage village will give 100% satisfaction. Main defective which I feels no guide. At least good audio guidance as we are getting in Al Shaheed park Museum.
