Failika Island- Palace of Sheikh Abdullah Al Salim Al Sabah Museum

I want to live in this house on Failika! It's a beautiful museum that was once a palace and I can only imagine how it was run in the past. I can imagine the hustle and bustle of cooks and housekeepers taking care of the family living there.

 "The vision for Failaka Heritage Village and the Palace of Sheikh Abdullah Al Salam, a previous ruler of Kuwait commenced in 2002 under the auspices of the then Emir of Kuwait H.H. Sheikh Jaber Al Ahmed Al Jaber Al Sabah. The above task was further initiated by Masharee Al Khair Establishment a Kuwait charity, who placed the following message on the wall of the reception building.

Our heritage was the greatest achievement of our ancestors, and our fathers kept it for us, we implant this heritage in the minds of our children, our heritage is a river full of light which we take continuously to guide us to the good, to the prosperity in the future."

 It's a shame no one really visits

 Of course I had to take a picture of the amazing doors

 The kitchen
 The 'bridal suite'

I have so many ideas for tourism in Kuwait but I doubt tourism is on anyone's mind in reality, only talking
