I was there afterwork. Was about 6.30 pm and I was alone. So nice to visit a museum alone with no one. All the rooms and the masterpieces for me only. I also have pictures.

Amazing collection of art from all over the region. The museum is located inside a pre-oil Kuwaiti house, which is one of the few remaining pre-oil houses left. The museum is truly Kuwait's hidden jewel.
