The Tareq Rajab Museum

of Islamic Calligraphy was inaugurated

by the British Ambassador

Mr Stuart Laing


The evening started with a beautiful performance of Music by internationally renowned British concert pianist Thalia Myers and Emma Williams who is one of London’s leading young flautists. The concert was followed by the opening of the Museum and a light supper.

The impressive and newly constructed Dar Jehan building contains probably the largest collection of Islamic calligraphy works of art which ranges from 7th Century to the present day.



A large number of Kuwaiti officials, dignitaries and friends were present to witness the opening of the collection of calligraphy.





The Museum is now open to the general public, opening hours from 9am to 12-00 and from 4pm to 7pm, Friday mornings only. A publication will also be available in the near future to compliment the collection.
