A very nice small museum which is calm and clear. A great gift shop and nice place to stop for coffee (and mini donuts).

The Sadu House Museum in Kuwait City is small - located in an old house - but if you are interested in the very beautiful traditional Bedouin weaving culture, it is interesting. They have examples, of course, of this old weaving art, but there is also a very good film on how it is made and the culture expressed in the designs. I enjoyed my visit. In the gift shop you can buy pieces of sadu made by local women and, after that, there is a very pleasant little café with good coffee run by a group of very friendly young men from Africa!

As of Nov. 10th, 2018, the Sadu House is closed for renovations for the next few months, according to museum staff. The gift shop and coffee shop inside are still open. Hotel concierges and professional tour guides for Kuwait have not been aware of this closure.

Brilliant place to take senior school kids for a trip and it’s free. The architecture and surroundings transport you to a traditional time. The Sadi House situated off the gulf road is a place not to miss. It shows you snippets of Arabic traditions and culture. As you enter the door on your left is a very hip African inspired cafe coffee shop with some beautiful weaves hanging up on the walls. Then as you go through the Sadu house you get to see the history of the people who weave and the clothing that was made. You even get to watch a small informative video. Ring before hand to book the weaving workshop where a traditional woman shows you the process of weaving. She speaks mainly Arabic but ask someone to translate. Towards the end of the Sadi house is an outstanding gift shop with handmade weaves, little weaving kits, books and much more. If you buy something then you are giving back to the local artists. This is a brilliant place to take school kids studying Art, Textiles or DT. It’s also a great place to go to visit in your spare time.
