What an amazing lady! Mrs Qattan welcomed us warmly with juice and cake whilst she gave us an introduction to her incredible house. Apart from the stunning mirror work, she also paints and crafts that she uses lighting to highlight. The 'planetarium' is magical!

That's not possible! The Mirror House is a private residence, hence you need to make an appointment for the owner to take you around.

Yes you do need to make an appointment. However, the Mirror House is currently closed for the annual summer holiday. We will reopen in August so please check with us then.

Will attractions open during Eid al-Fitr? (4 Replies)
Hello, I was wondering will the major attractions (e.g. Kuwait Towers, The Grand Mosque, Mirror House, Tareq Rajab Museum, etc.) open during the Eid al-Fitr? I have tried to send inquiry emails but there's no response ...

Hello mostly everything opens but during certain hours. After the magrib prayer which is 6pm. I think you should ask your hotel about timings. Go to mubarkiya market at night which is the traditional old souk plus have dinner at a restaurant in the area know as al shimam. Msg me if you have any questions about Kuwait.
