Dar al-Athar al-Islamiyyah

Dar al-Athar al-Islamiyyah (DAI) at Kuwait National Museum (KNM) was established in 1983 to transform the private collection of Sheikh Nasser Sabah al-Ahmad al-Sabah and Sheikha Hussa Sabah al-Salem al-Sabah into a comprehensive exhibition of art from the Islamic world. A team of specialists from different institutions participated in this transformation. Members of the team included Dr. Marilyn Jenkins from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Dr. Michael Bates from the American Numismatics Society and Manuel Keene of The al-Sabah Collection.
