Sadu House reviews
A very nice small museum which is calm and clear. A great gift shop and nice place to stop for coffee (and mini donuts). more »
A heritage Kuwaiti house with beautiful Islamic Architecture design that maintains the traditional Sadu industry including weaving, knitting wool, tents and hair houses. more »
Filled with culture from the structure to each element. The richness and origin of the Arab world is captured in ways words can't compose.
Perfect historical place in Kuwait city, well maintained, traditional theme and good gallery of historic textiles making "Sadu"
