A Great Place to Visit: Sheikh Abdullah Al Salam Cultural Centre at Hawally.

Tuesday, February 16, 2021

The State of Kuwait is a country in Western Asia situated in the Northern edge of Easter Arabia at the tip of the Persian Gulf. It boarders Iraq to the north and Saudi Arabia to the south. Kuwait’s 2,000 years of history encompasses nomadic tribes, periods of settlement, times of peace and even longer periods of conflict, invasion and war. Now one of the world’s wealthiest countries due to oil, trade has sustained its population and its culture based on Islamic roots.
Around two years back myself and my family with friends visited Sheikh Abdullah Al Salam Cultural Centre. The museum is named after the late sheikh Abdullah Al Salam Al Sabha, who was the 11th ruler of Kuwait, the first Amir and founder of Modern Kuwait. The museum presents Kuwaiti, Islamic and Arabic culture and history. It includes the natural history museum, science museum, the space museum, the Arabic Islamic science museum and the fine arts center. It exhibits featuring astronomy, geography, geometry, medicine, physics etc.

Firstly, we visited the natural history museum, entered the world of dinosaurs, saw the amazing reptiles and mammals. The Prehistoric Life gallery includes over 30 full size prehistoric creatures both skeletal and full bodied. I took a lot of photos with the giant creatures and in front of them I looked like a tiny creature. Then we moved to the world of geology and geography where we found the earth’s crest and formation of volcanic eruptions. And then saw the ecosystem zone where we found a unique insight into the natural world, both past and present. In the science museum we found very interesting with lot of historical vehicles cars, planes, boats, it gives me a great impression and feel very happy. Some of them hanged from the roof. It was amazing to see it. Some of the engines technology also exhibited in the gallery. I want to spend more time there but forced to move to next place. The Space museum is very much impressive with the latest design and four galleries with 110 seat planetarium. It has the model of the international space station. And we get an opportunity to understand how the astronaut’s life in the space. I wear the astronauts dress and took picture too. The last and final Gallery visited was Arabic Islamic Science Museum. This museum is dedicated to the Arabic Scholars and inventors over history. Mainly Islamic civilization. Many of the books and portraits are very old and rare ones.

We spent almost 4.5 hours exploring the entire museum and felt tired walking and seeing the various items. It was like a dream world where I was transported to a bygone era. If I had not seen it, it would have been a great loss for me. I was very thankful to my parents. I enjoyed the trip and got a lot of information and knowledge.
