The museum, held under the supervision of Dar Al-Athar Al-Islamiyyah (DAI) of Kuwait, includes over 360 rare pieces and exceptional jewelry of the early Islamic era up to the 17th century empires including the Ottoman time, said Sheikh Ali, noting that it will give the opportunity for international visitors to see 1,000 years of Islamic art history.

The exhibition will be patronized by His Highness the Prime Minister and will also be attended by representatives of His Highness the Premier, Minister of Information and Minister of State for Youth Affairs Sheikh Salman Al-Humoud Al-Sabah and General Supervisor of Dar Al-Athar Al-Islamiyyah (DAI) Sheikha Hussah Sabah Al-Salem Al-Sabah, the Ambassador added.
