So many wonderful artifacts from different time periods. I wanted to take some pics for my blog until I saw the NO PICTURES sign. The rebel in me wanted to take some just to be defiant. So with a few loud coughs I got a couple pics. You can visit the website for better pics, my camera phone sucks. It's a huge museum. The guards come and check on you every so often. I thought I was being slick about taking pics until my daughter points out there is a guard coming. As I put the phone in my pocket a "clicking" sound went off. BUSTED!
I jokingly told the guard I wasn't taking any pics, it was just an accident. Yeah right! Then why did I keep rambling and break into a sweat? I'm not a very good liar it seems. Anyways as we went into the other section there's a guy sitting on the left. My daughter comes to me and tells me Mom! "There's cameras everywhere and the guy is watching you!" I guess that's why he grumbled at me when I said hi to him. BUSTED again! I just use the "I'm an American tourist and I didn't know" excuse. Is it hot in here or is it just me?
The museum is owned by a Kuwaiti married to an expat lady and they have collected these things since the 50's. They also own the New English School around the corner from the museum so they have the funding to travel everywhere. There is a second museum right around the corner from it. But remember no pictures, although you might want to offer the guard a couple kd and he might let you slip. Remember in Kuwait anything is possible.
