Wander through a fascinating collection of ethno items at Tareq Rajab Museum, home to exquisitely decorated jewelry, headdresses, costumes, and musical instruments. Housed inside the basement of a private villa, the museum was established by the country's first minister of antiquities. Dedicate to all things beautiful, the venue remains best known for its selection of Arabic manuscripts, arguably the museum's most important possession. Tareq Rajab Museum is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Kuwait City Edition.

Just an ordinary Kuwaiti family home from the outside but there is a treasure trove of amazing items from the Arab and South Asian regions. Not a lot of other places of interest in Kuwait so visitors ... more »
Awesome place. If you are interested in history this place is a must visit for you. Its behind the English school on street 5. The google map took me to a slightly different place but with the help of some locals I was able to find the place. The building is having the clear name "Tareq Rajab museum" written on it. This place is having hundreds and hundreds of artifacts really hats off for the great effort. This museum is among the normal houses so see closely when you are finding the place. I hope it will help the people who will go in the future. Take your time to absorb the rich history of past. I loved this place. The ticket is 2 KD per person.
This is a museum housing a private collection of Islamic Arts and Islamic Calligraphy dating from the early days of Islam to date. It is a must visit for anybody who has a keen interest in Arabic Calligraphy or Islamic Arts. Entry fees: 2 KD for Adults and for Children & Students it is free. Timings: Saturday to Thursday - 9AM to 12PM and 4PM to 7PM. Fridays - 9AM to 12PM. They say photography is not allowed but do allow it with permission. Excellent, well preserved collection of antiques artefacts, hand written manuscripts and Qurans, coins, paintings and embroidered clothing. Some ornate furniture too. Takes about an Hour and half to see.
