Tareq Rajab Museum is a magical place that houses some of the finest Islamic art in the whole of Oman.
There are more than 30,000 items on display, which have been collected over the past 50 years - with 10,000 of these permanently on display.
Founded by Tareq Sayed Rajab, who was the first Kuwaiti to travel abroad to study art and archaeology, the museum is one of the truly unmissable tourist attractions for people staying in Al Jahra hotels.
The museum is split into two distinct parts. The first contains calligraphy, manuscript, stone carvings, ceramics and metalwork.
Area B houses more modern Islamic objects - all of which were created in the last 250 years - including costumes, textiles, jewellery and musical instruments.
The museum is less than an hour's drive from the Copthorne Al Jahra Kuwait.
In 2001 the Tareq Rajab Museum opened the Dar El Cid Exhibition Halls. Unlike the more permanent collection of its sister museum, the exhibition centre houses touring and temporary art exhibitions.
It is also a venue for speakers and experts on various aspects of Islamic and international art and culture.
To date the venue has had a show of Indian miniatures, lithographs of Egypt, and a show celebrating the Marsh Arabs.
