The museum journey starts with a virtual welcome by the Governor to the visitors and an introduction to his vision for Kuwait. This visitors are then transported back in time, to the days of maritime economy, when Kuwait was a sea-faring economy. The visitor is invited to sail into Kuwait on a dhow and immerse themselves in the history of the region as it evolved, discovered oil, surviving invasions and emerging stronger under a determined leadership.
The museum records the history of the people, their culture and displays monetary instruments, currencies and artefacts, along with an interactive educational zone for children. We developed the spatial and storyline narrative as well as the design detailing, interior design, exhibit and display design, lighting and services for this museum before handing over to the local team for fabrication.
