Kuwait towers (2 hrs)
The entrance fee to the Viewing Sphere is 2 dinar. But if you like to have lunch or dinner in the restaurant, you should first go there, as after your visit to the restaurant the entrance to the Viewing Sphere is only 1 dinar. The restaurant is at 82 metres and the buffet costs 10 dinar.
The location of the towers is not really necessary to mention but ok, it is located near downtown at the Arabian Gulf Street. The opening hours are from 9 am to midnight.
Grand Mosque (1 hr)
You have to report at the gate between 9 am and 11 am or between 5 pm and 9 pm. An English speaking guide will show you around and there is no entrance fee.
National museum (1 hr)
The entrance is free. At the gate they mention that picture taking is prohibited, but actually it is allowed. The museum is still under construction, so perhaps it is really nice in a few years.
We can’t say much about the opening hours, as they are different in summer and winter and sometimes they don’t even follow the mentioned hours. But roughly you can say it is open in the morning and the afternoon, but it is closed between 1 pm and 4 pm. The museum is located just off Arabian Gulf Street, almost opposite the National Assembly.
Corniche (1-3 hrs)
The Corniche is marked at its southern end by the Scientific Center and at its northernmost point by the Kuwait Towers. Stop off at any one of the many beaches, restaurants or coffeehouses to watch a beautiful sunset.
The main activities in Kuwait City are shopping, eating, drinking non-alcoholic beverages and smoke your ‘Hookah’, or water-pipe, and you will find many places where you can do this. During summer it is great to be here at night, and in winter during daytime.
Scientific centre (1-2 hrs)
You can learn about marine life from the many tanks with rays, fish and other sea creatures. The main tank holds 1.5 million litres of water and contains deep-sea sharks, turtles, fish and artificial corals.
The entrance fee to the aquarium is 1,5 dinar during daytime, after 5 pm this will be 3 dinar. The museum is open year round from 9 am to 9:30 pm.
