Interesting history of weaving in the region. Good quality displays, well preserved building. There was a bazaar being held during our visit so we were able to combine some shopping with culture. Good mix.

Its a great place to learn about what the Kuwaiti people used to do for a living in the era before the oil was discovered. There is also a chic coffee shop inside that is nice to hang out in during the afternoon
