As somebody who loves history, I love going to museums. And this museum really teaches you about modern Kuwait history. As usual when visiting museums in Kuwait I was struck by the fact that I was the sole visitor present. It seems people in Kuwait are more interested in the malls rather than history. Starting from the beginning of the... More

This museum is a hard one to get into - they keep very irregular hours and after having tried several times (only to have found that it was closed) without getting in I finally made it! This is a great museum, a cool project, and a great account of the invasion and liberation of Kuwait. Well worth the visit, go... More

Nice and well conceived museum of the Iraqi invasion of kuwait and subsequent liberation. Saddam is not well revered here. Good job kuwait! Good to visit

Very enjoyable museum, detailed displays, one of the best museums in Kuwait for the Gulf War and narrates stories of martyrs and underground resistance. Must-visit for anyone interested in history.

Really enjoyed visiting this museum in February 2013. Would encourage you to stick with it through the basic models trying to detail the invasion until it gets to how countries from around the world helped patch up Kuwait. No idea the task force was so diverse. There is a small room picturing the effects of chemical warfare which is very... More

Here are the positives: They greeted us with coffee in a waiting area before we entered the museum. The museum explains the history of Kuwait and their history with Iraq. It goes in-depth into the war and has an area for each coalition force to thank them for helping liberate Kuwait from the Iraqi invaders. Negative: Needs improvement in the... More

We sat and had tea before we walked through the museum. Got to see part of the statue of saddam that was torn down in Iraq, some of his stuff was also there.
