Lidia was very nice and she has great knowledge. I like to listen her when we see around. And her art is unique. The Galaxy hall is really effected me. she designed in a very nice and psychological way. Great experience for me. The people Kuwait should visit her gallery, too.

Overall, our would describe our experience as interesting… The tour started quite normal. The woman was giving us a private tour of the house. The downstairs was absolutely gorgeous and filled with intricate pieces of mirror mosaics. The beautiful pieces of art flowed into each other. She described her process and inspiration. We genuinely enjoyed the downstairs tour!

However, once we were upstairs it was a different story. Our guide started going on long tirades about everything from politics to religion to family structure and more! Some of the rants were quite offensive and misogynistic. The artwork upstairs wasn’t to the same level of artwork downstairs. It probably would have still been interesting if each room hadn’t been paired with a long monologue of everything wrong with the world.

There was an egg room, where maybe 30 or so paintings were based around eggs. There was a “sex wall” (surprisingly nothing offensive was shown in the paintings). Then there was this galaxy room. We had to sit down while she played these eerie music and turned on different flashing lights. She called it art therapy, but it was honestly more of a headache. There was this throwing game where she had us throw some of her paintings at carpets.

At the end of our two hour tour, she was genuinely concerned we couldn’t stay longer. We’d already gone 20 minutes over and it seemed like she wanted us to continue playing games. We had to remind her multiple times that we had dinner reservations to get out of there.

It was an odd experience, but certainly unforgettable! If the tour had ended with the downstairs, I would have rated it higher. I just would recommend not going upstairs or that management calm down with the offensive, long tirades!

Yesterday, we had a magical experience and we are grateful to meet Lidia, the artist behind the Mirror House. More than an artist, she is a problem-solver and a wonderful person. You will love her story and you will see in her eyes the passion that even after years is still twinkling. The Mirror House showcases a room of mirror mosaics, paintings, and collection of a recycled items that were turned into amazing figures. She also hosts a game that builds a connection with us. Her insight about life is truly remarkable. This is a must visit in Kuwait!

This is by far the best art museum in the Middle East. It is simply amazing. Authentic, genuine Kuwaiti artistic soul and mesmerizing art. God bless Lydia Al-Qattan, the most genuine and kind-hearted old lady. She is the true face of Kuwait 🇰🇼❤️

The house in itself is attraction and to can be considered as one of a kind places to visit. At of all the places I have ever seen I can sincerely say that this house holds one of the most unique stories that have I have ever encountered.

Mrs. Lydia And her daughter or the most gracious hosts and the most polite people I have come to see in a touristic attraction, Keeping in mind that this is the house they Grew up in.

The information in the stories that they provided about the construction and reconstruction of the various phases of the house along with the history of Kuwait are in themselves priceless.

I advise every single person to visit this venue. From entering the house to the exit of the house is one continuous tale of family, history, persistence and passion.

I cannot give any more advice than simply to just go and have a look.

I was there ten years ago while working as an English teacher in Kuwait. I see the site has grown in importance. I cant remember how we heard of the place at the time but it was definitely interesting to visit and the owner very welcoming. Had to put Oct 2019 date on here but was there in 2009....

This was the most dashing experience in Kuwait City by far. The house is a unique masterpiece and we owe it to an amazing woman, the owner of the house.
She is an artist in more ways than one. She’s an accomplished painter, a great storyteller and the creator of this fabulous place.
You will be pampered throughout your visit at the house and prepare yourself to be amazed. From the cinnamon tea with delicious cookies and a throwing contest rewarded with cute gifts to a travel in the mirror world and the entire Universe the visit to the Mirror House is a unique and wonderful adventure.

Thank you very much for your feedback. It is most appreciated. However, we believe that you may have visited the Mirror House PRIOR to the Covid-19 pandemic because NOW, things are a little different when it comes to serving refreshment for the safety of our visitors.

Thank you very much for your feedback, however, I believe you mean Mrs. Lidia, NOT Jalila Qattan. Mrs. Lidia IS the CREATOR of the Mirror House. Thank you again for your kind words.

家自体はすごいのですが、オーナーさんの説明がながく自由にみて回れません。飛行機の時間が迫っていると伝えても強引に引き止められて困りました。

As mentioned in the TripAdvisor description and on our official website, the Mirror House is a PRIVATE museum/ residence where the artist who made this masterpiece, will give you a personal tour of her house, which is an intellectual journey. The description is as long as is relevant to the subject of the different Mirror House Halls and Art Galleries. No more and no less. The artist allowed you to go around freely because you were in a hurry to leave so you cannot say she took too long to explain because while you were looking around freely and NOT attending the tour with the other guests, the other guests, who had a stronger command of the English language, were interested in the artist’s guided tour. In addition, YOU left before the end of the tour without benefiting from the information which was completely at your own discretion with no objection.

While we only had less than 2 days in Kuwait, the experience of visiting the Mirror House was one which was prioritized. We committed the entirety of our available time on day two, and really enjoyed every moment of the visit to Lydia's home. The immense effort and dynamic energy which she displays is truly inspiring. The hospitality of her family, including daughter Jaleela, is so thoughtful and mindful. They encouraged us, as a family with a young child, to relax, to appreciate each element of the mosaics, to revel in the the fantastic and revealing paintings by both Khalifa Qattan and Lydia, and to truly come to know the family and its tremendous activities. Art can be an insightful, profound, engaging, thought-provoking, or kindness infused experience. Lydia and Jaleela have achieved all of these things and so much more with their tours. May the Universe continue to bestow blessings upon this place and those that step foot inside.
