Dar Al Athar Al Islamiyya

Top choice cultural centre in Kuwait City

This exceptional cultural centre has stunning galleries that contain some of the highlights of the world-class Al Sabah Collection, part of which was in the National Museum before the Iraqi invasion. With informative labels in English and Arabic, videos with experts explaining the pieces and some exquisite sculptures and archaeological finds of great antiquity from across the region, it's everything the National Museum could be, albeit on a smaller scale. There's also an auditorium and an excellent gift shop.

Look out for temporary exhibitions on various themes.
