Soon (within week) The first Racing Track will open in Shuwaikh, Kuwait.
A house originally built in the 1940s by Abdullah Al-Othman has been turned into a national museum. Al-Othman Museum houses historical artifacts, art and documents which were collected by people who wanted to see their rich cultural heritage under one roof where it is protected and treasured. The museum serves as a reminder of the past events which instills a great sense of nationalism, patriotism and responsibility among the younger generations. Surrounded by an elevated wall, in a total area of 9,454 square meters, Abdullah Othman Museum houses numerous rooms dedicated to the history and culture of Kuwait from the pre-oil era to present time. Housh (courtyard), diwaniyas, muqallatt, kitchen, living room, master’s bedroom and visitors’ room can all be seen. There are rooms dedicated to ministries such as Ministry of Information, Interior and the Culture and Arts, along with the Kuwaiti House Museum, Heritage Hall, Drama Museum, Kuwaiti Souq, Journey of Life Museum. They are all housed in the wellorganized Othman Museum, located just along the intersection of Abdullah Al- Othman Street and Ibn Khaldoun Street at Nugrat Al-Othman in Hawally.
Everyone of us like to stare at stars while camping and hangout in deserts, But this time Kuwait Science Club has opened Astronomical Museum name “Alaujairy’s Astronomical Museum” where you can enjoy the universe around the earth with 3d effect videos which is its first kind of Museum in Kuwait but I don’t know whether in gulf too or not. Yesterday I had a short visit of this museum but my bad that my DSLR camera was not with me and my phone didn’t support me in low light, still something is better then nothing.
Almost everyone of us know Dr. Saleh Moahmmed Alaujairy, The one and only who is known as the backbone of all Astronomical field development in Kuwait and part of our universities syllabus or in other words we can say that it was his dream comes true in shape of “Al Aujairy’s Astronomical Museum”.
As I stepped in, it really felt me like that now I am very far from earth, For a while you will really find you very close to stars and planets with sound effects. They has placed real stones from moon and many more astronomical stuff & telescopes…etc
