Kuwait does not have many museums. The Tarek Rajanb Museums - one for calligraphy and one for Islamic Arts are definitely places to visit. This Kuwaiti gentleman has been collecting pieces since he was a young boy. His collections come from all over the Middle East.

My husband loved the guns, my sister the pottery. Very tranquil and well worth a visit. A short walk from the calligraphy museum which is also stunning.

The location is an ode to the loving relationship between its founders and curators who seem... 更多
