  • A very nice small museum which is calm and clear. A great gift shop and nice place to stop for coffee (and mini donuts).  more »
  • A heritage Kuwaiti house with beautiful Islamic Architecture design that maintains the traditional Sadu industry including weaving, knitting wool, tents and hair houses.  more »
  • Filled with culture from the structure to each element. The richness and origin of the Arab world is captured in ways words can't compose.
  • Perfect historical place in Kuwait city, well maintained, traditional theme and good gallery of historic textiles making "Sadu"
