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.

Amazing mosaic art made of mirrors. Madam Lidia is great, welcoming and so talented for making her house of mirror. She is cool and very artistic. Her and her late husband's artworks must be visit in Kuwait. It was so interesting knowing the story of each mirror designed and stick all over plus the recycling, invasion time and her love story :).. My favorite part is the stairs!.. It is great to pass a couple of hours to know more about Kuwait old times. It is always cool to take you back in 1960's. Your 2 hours is really worth.. Please do not forget to call for appointment.

This place is just pure whimsy! The owner and her late husband were both artists who had a lust for life, appointments are necessary for viewing but it was such a wonderful and unique experience.

The first floor of the house is completely covered in mirrored tile and the artist has such a fascinating story, she is surly a fire cracker that has endless energy! The second floor has a lot of interesting art by her late husband and a look into the universe.... Tours can run a little long but overall a lovely afternoon.

Fascinating mosaic house and art gallery. Make sure to make an appointment as tours are by appointment only. This is the artist and her late husband's family home which she has decorated with mosaics personally over a number a years. Make sure to look at the photograph albums showing the work in progress. Each mosaic room has a theme and upstairs there is an exhibition of her late husband's work. Some amazing recycled art work going on as well. You will be offered home-made organic juice and cake before the tour which was delicious. A great way to pass a couple of hours.

I wanted to visit Kuwait for a few days but was worried how to fill my time. Luckily I had heard about the Mirror House from a friend and decided to check it out. Jalila was so very kind, helping me to make an appointment. The house itself is magnificent and definitely a sight to see. The artist, Lidia, was so kind and welcoming and the whole experience was definitely one to remember. Worth checking out if you come to Kuwait!
