Interesting history of weaving in the region. Good quality displays, well preserved building. There was a bazaar being held during our visit so we were able to combine some shopping with culture. Good mix.

Its a great place to learn about what the Kuwaiti people used to do for a living in the era before the oil was discovered. There is also a chic coffee shop inside that is nice to hang out in during the afternoon

It is interesting to see the building as it is an old kuwaiti house. The textile exposition is interesting but there are not many pieces.

This is a small house with the history of weaving in the past, interesting to see the weaving but the building itself is worth visiting but as it is small I would suggest combining it with another attraction nearby.

The museum is located at a 1930s traditional house that is worth visiting just by itself: gives a very nice idea on how a Kuwaiti house may look back in the days. The museum contains a modest number of items but the display is done...More
