Al Qurain Martyrs’ Museum

Museum in Kuwait City

In the residential suburb of Qurain, a 20-minute taxi ride southeast of the city centre, this small museum is a memorial to a cell of young Kuwaitis who tried to resist arrest in February 1991. To understand what the Iraqi invasion meant to an ordinary Kuwaiti family, allow half an hour to visit this sobering museum (or what's left of it), if only to see copies of documents issuing instructions to ‘burn and destroy’ homes and ‘fire on demonstrations’.

Bus 101 stops within a 10-minute walk of the museum, but it is difficult to find the precise location without assistance.
