Al Salam Palace , Kuwait

November 4, 20147 Comments

al1The restoration of Al Salam Palace is a cause for great joy and celebration in Kuwait. The original landmark palace was built in the 1960s to accommodate visiting heads of state. In the 1990s the palace was severely damaged during the Iraqi invasion and thought by many to be beyond repair.  Hopes of restoring the abandoned palace were unfulfilled over 30 years, but the Amiri Diwan has announced with great pride that the palace, its famous chandelier and its extensive grounds, will be restored to their former beauty and splendour.al2

In 2016 the palace will re-open as a museum dedicated to the history of Kuwait told through its 15 rulers. The design will retain the palace’s original character while incorporating contemporary additions and meeting the highest international construction standards.  Visitors will follow in the footsteps of heads of states and VIPs, arriving in the Rotunda, the heart of the original palace, before beginning a journey through nine re-created palatial rooms and galleries. The new palace will border the new Sheikh Jaber Al Ahmad Cultural Centre and be part of Kuwait’s vibrant new cultural landscape.al3
Al Salam Palace will consist of:
– Museum to tell the history of Kuwait through the story of its rulers
– Visitor Centre
– Palace Garden
