Dar al Athar al Islamiyyah at Amricani Cultural Centre

Founded in 1983 by by Sheikh Nasser Sabah al Ahmed al Sabah, and his wife Sheikha Hussah Sabah al Salem al Sabah.

Dar al Athar al Islamiyyah at Amricani Cultural Centre is a cultural organisation based around the private art collection owned by Sheikh Nasser Sabah al Ahmed al Sabah, and his wife Sheikha Hussah Sabah al Salem al Sabah.

Since its inception in 1983, DAI has grown from a single focus organisation created to manage the loan of the prestigious al Sabah Collection of art from the Islamic world to the State of Kuwait to become an internationally recognised cultural organisation. While the rehabilitation project of the DAI’s buildings at the Kuwait National Museum is underway, the Amricani Cultural Centre is the home of DAI, where it hosts the administrative department alongside libraries, conservation studios, exhibition space and theatre facilities for all cultural seasons activities.
