Survivor Challenge - Escape Room

1 review
Work with other group members to solve an escape room challenge. The backstory: while on a mission to a remote location ravaged by strong weather, a hurricane comes, forcing you and your team to take cover in an abandoned silo. Use clues and solve puzzles to figure out the escape route before it’s too late. Beat the record time and gain well-deserved bragging rights.
$50.00 per adult

This is an important piece of history for Kuwait and very interesting to see. A brochure is provided for English speakers and this well worth reading. It is free to get in and I'd recommend a visit.

Visited today. Less than half an hour is enough. Important place for the locals. The guide(guard) didn't speak english but gave a leaflet with the story in english.

This museum is the site of Kuwait's "Alamo". In the Persian Gulf War, this is the location where about 19 members of Kuwait's resistance fought off Saddam Hussein's much more heavily armored Republican Guard. The Kuwaiti resistance had simple guns. The Republican Guard had tanks, heavy artillery, and more advanced weapons. Despite this, the Kuwaitis staved off the Republican Guard soldiers for about 10 hours. A few Kuwaitis escaped. The rest are considered martyrs. The building is important for its historical significance. The museum also highlights the hundreds of Kuwaiti martyrs who, over time, resisted Saddam's tyrannical rule. The museum displays a letter on the wall from General Norman Schwarzkopf, Commander of Coalition Forces in the Persian Gulf War, in which he states that he wishes his army had arrived four (4) days earlier, so that this tragedy might have been avoided. The museum displays other letters from Saddam’s regime ordering that any members of the Kuwaiti resistance be detained and killed, including children. Guidebooks are available in English and Arabic. Two museum employees escorted me around the museum, and, although they did not speak much English, we managed to communicate effectively. They made me feel welcome there, despite my arriving in the pitch dark on a Friday evening, an onslaught of rain, and the roof flooding through to the floor in buckets.

This house tells you the story of sacrifice in the name of freedom, the last resistance group stood in the face of enemy on the day of freeing Kuwait from the iraqe troops.
