Have you been to the Kuwait Car Museum? Did you know they have one of the rarest cars in the world on display? A 1956 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud Convertible, 3 were only ever produced, one met with an accident, one is in a private collection and the other is displayed here. Stunning Classic & Vintage Cars greet you at this wonderful museum, that even boasts a library and specialist workshops for Vintage Car Owners. But, in addition to this, there's Museum City, where 6-16 year olds can take a car out for a spin, of course after they have obtained their 'licence'.
Without doubt the heart and soul of the Kuwait Historical, Vintage and Classic Car Museum is the Museum Exhibition Hall itself. Presented within is the finest collection of classic cars on public display anywhere within the region, with a superb ‘James Bond’ Aston Martin DB5 at the entrance of the museum exhibition hall, more than a full century of motoring history is laid out –and many cars hold unique and special connections to Kuwait. Adorning the walls of the exhibition hall are images from motoring’s illustrious past, many of the photographs specifically highlight Kuwait’s motoring history too. Also there is a permanent display of models illustrating many of the most iconic cars of the last hundred years...
The museum has an extensive library of motoring publications from around the world. The library provides an essential resource for anyone researching prior to restoring their car, or for anyone with an avid interest in discovering more about motoring history.
Education through entertainment
Look at it which ever way you will, but there’s no denying the fact that Kuwait has a lamentable record on road safety. The nation stands near the top of every global list that looks at accident and fatality rates.
The Kuwait Historical, Vintage & Classic Car Museum concerns itself not only with the preservation of Kuwait’s motoring heritage but also safeguarding and protecting contemporary motoring through education and awareness.
Their ‘Museum City’ stands as the most tangible example of this commitment to improving Kuwait’s road safety record.
Located within the museum complex, ‘Museum City’ provides a unique and self-contained driving experience for 6 to 16 year-olds.
Arrive & Drive
Popular with schools but also open to the general public, the facility houses a realistic road network with traffic lights, road signs and road markings –all mirroring those found on all major roads.
Having first registered and been entertained (and educated) by a specially prepared lecture on the rules of the road, the children are invited to engage in a question and answer session with qualified instructors.
Only then are they issued with their ‘licence’ and introduced to their electrically-powered vehicles. Practical implementation of the rules learned during the theory session is invaluable. As they move throughout the road network they are obliged to deal with other ‘road-users’ and interact with ‘real-life’ driving situations.
Needless to say, mistakes made on the road at Museum City are all part of the learning experience, and mean one less mistake likely to be made on the city’s streets.
The Kuwait Car Museum is open daily from Saturday to Thursday, from 8am to 1pm and from 4pm to 8pm.
Admission is Free.
