Historical, Vintage and Classic Cars Museum Kuwait

If classic cars predominate, it is probably because, like great art, it takes time for a design to escape the influence of fashion and be fairly judged on its own merits; it also explains why many modern cars take older models as their inspiration.

I visited the Vintage Car Museum in Amman, during our visit to Jordan. Kuwait too has a beautiful and rich Historical and Vintage Car Museum. The idea of the museum is to show the world the history of Kuwait and to connect the past with the present and the future. It was established to show Kuwait’s automotive tradition and to preserve vintage vehicles of the region.



As well as the cars on show, facilities at the museum include a library where you can sit and leisurely read books on cars and bikes. It also serves as a centre for car enthusiasts and host activities for owners and fans.

Many cars in the collection come from the Al-Sabah family of Kuwait, including a presidential Lincoln and an Imperial. Also saw cars donated by Princess Sarah from S.Arabia and President of New Zealand.

There are nearly 50 cars on display excluding 2 bikes at the entrance.

Our visit was an unforgettable and enduring experience.

Address: Shuwaikh Industrial Area, Block 8, Street 49.

The museum at AMMAN is a bigger and larger one and consist of Royal Automobile Museum & The Children's Museum. Since its a automobile museum you will get to see various aeroplanes, cycles, bikes, cars(even sports cars....which you will not get to see in Kuwait's museum).In Kuwait's museum you will see two bikes at the entrance.The collection of cars in both the museums are good and different.

To Parimita: Can you compare this with 'automobile museum of Amman (Jordan)'? I missed to see that during our Jordan tour.
