The Habitat Museum displays the richness and diversity of the natural habitats of Kuwait through a large number of interactive programs and scenographic recreations. At the entrance, visitors receive a “Seed Ticket” containing a chip that allows them to obtain information about that particular seed and interact with each of the multimedia resources in the museum. Recreations of the plants and animals of Kuwait coexist with large-format audiovisual productions.
