Owner description: Tours by appointment only! The Only House in the World entirely covered with Mirror Mosaic by a single artist! The Mirror House, also called, The Khalifa & Lidia Qattan Art Museum, is the residence of the Pioneer Kuwaiti Artist, Khalifa Qattan, and his wife Lidia, both artists whom have opened their house and art galleries to share their unique art with people from around the world. The artist and creator of the Mirror House, Lidia Qattan, still gives personal tours of her magical house, which is in reality a wonderful journey of exploration.

Was such an amazing experience with this humble lady "Lidia". It's her private house and you would expect what you would see as she is an artist, however, what you will see is beyond your expectations and imaginations.

Thanks Lidia for everything, you are such an inspiring and amazing person. All your designs and paintings are full of power, passion and energy.

Wild definitely visit again.

P.S. make sure that you book in advance and take an appointment, Lidia is 70+ yrs old and she is running the place by her own. So, it's appreciated that we all give her the proper time to rest.

Starting from the courtyard you will feel like you are in a magic tale. The house of mirrors as its name is almost totally covered by mirror mosaics. Each of the room in the house has a story to tell. Starting from the representation of mother earth and ending with true marks of Kuwait hystory. But overall the real attraction of this place is its owner. A powerfull and energetic Italian artist who moved to Kuwait for love and then now represents one of Kuwait's more modern and enthusiastic faces.
In one word: Unbelievable!
