Tareq Rajab Museum
The Tareq Rajab Museum is located at the main city area of Kuwait. The museum has the collection of above thirty thousand items collected by Tareq Sayed Rajab and his beloved wife Jehan Wellborne. The items are about fifty years old.
Tareq Sayed Rajab, after completing his studies in US, married Jehan Wellborne in the year 1955 and since then they had a plan of constructing their own museum. This is how the idea of constructing the Tareq Rajab Museum came to existence and presently the museum displays around ten thousand collected items. Jehan Wellborne was passionate about researching on the lifestyle and culture of different types of people and their culture. Tareq's wife was also interested in the folklore and other traditional subjects. After getting married to Tareq Sayed, she worked on all these things and the collection of the items in the museum are the memories of her works.
The department of Antiquities and Museums in Kuwait selected Mr. Tareq Sayed Rajab as its Director. He was the first Director of the department but left the post after few years and joined his wife in her works. They traveled most of the rural areas of the Middle East and Saudi Arabia and researched on their lifestyle. The Tareq Rajab Museum in Kuwait represents the valuable effort and works through the precious collections.
