Posted by Irfan on Apr 15, 2013

I often visit to museum once or twice in a month to check the latest happenings and to fulfill my car enthusiasm needs. Before couple of days I had a visit to see the first Arabian Super car “Lykan” of which I posted earlier, meeting one of the museum officials Mr. Zakariya Dashti – Director of Media Committee, I came to know some important facts about The Museum so thought of sharing with my readers.

The Kuwait Historical Vintage and Classic Cars Museum was established in October, 2010. The establishment of the Museum is vitally important, as it is time to show the world the rich cultural heritage and historical tradition of Kuwait especially in the historical automotive sector as Kuwait is considered the richest country in the world with that field. The main aim of establishing the museum is to documents all the automotive information and connect the current and future generation to their past and urges them to complete the journey of our great civilization.

It also offers many services to the community, like the technical sessions about a verity of automotive knowledge, and will also give advice and guidance to owners wanting to restore their valuable vehicles.
