Kuwait National Museum

متحف الكويت الوطني

The museum comprises five buildings set around a central garden, their organization is parallel to the architectural plan of the vernacular Arab mud house with its central courtyard. The main buildings are connected to each other with elevated walkways. Ecochard explains that the grouping of those buildings corresponds to knowledge of the Arabian peninsula, its geography, its history and its civilization.
As of 2014, the museum was described as "underused and overlooked. Only one exhibition remains: an antiquated diorama display of life before the discovery of oil...."
