    Free to enter, Free beverages, water and snacks, Free interesting tour
    This was the first attraction I visited in Kuwait City. No entrance fee, was provided coffee, dates, cookies and box drink before the tour. I was asked to wear their beige abaya while inside the mosque and take off my shoes. Our guide speaks perfect english, explained the brief history of the mosque, sources of materials used to built it, prayer process inside this mosque, etc. She also showed the special room reserved exclusively for the use of the King. Highly recommended to visit this mosque!

    A beautiful, holy building
    A glorious building! The main room is spectacular in size and beautiful to behold. There was a good explanation about what goes on during a service and what each part of the room was for. I did feel that the tour guide had a bit of a chip on her shoulder as she explained Muslim dress codes. After the tour there was tea, water and juice available as well as some free souvenirs. I definitely recommend visiting!

    Very Good Tour
    We took an English language tour of this mosque. The 30-minute tour was very informative and the guide was excellent. The mosque is also quite impressive. We had our hotel call to confirm the schedule for the tours as the hours vary. Note that you enter the mosque at gate 7. (Our Careem driver dropped us off about 10 minutes from the entrance.) Highly recommended.

Completed in 1986 this huge mosque in the center of Kuwait is testament to the wealth of the emerging oil state. The prayer hall for men can provide space for 10,000 worshippers, while the adjacent hall for women has room for just under a thousand! Hence there is ample space for cars.

I visited during Ramadan when the complex was closed for foreigners.

Great site, levely people and a great gour and telling of the place, beautiful building and well organised. Might feel a bit odd as not to many other visitors.

This was worth going. They offer a free tour and its informative and interesting. They let you take photos. They also offered an additional short tour of some Arabic writings that were great to see how the different countries have different styles of fonts.
