To start with this is a modern art museum in the middle east. Then, the works are almost all done by local Arab artistes. Third, the space is very interesting. It is a mix of courtyards, terraces, small rooms and passages making the entire experience...More

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.
