  • Al Salam Palace Museum

    We were in Kuwait last week installing some of the 80+ immersive audio visual exhibits we have created for the Al Salam Palace Museum.

    The former royal residency was built in the 1960s and severely damaged during the Iraqi invasion. Restoration began in 2015 and the Palace will soon be returned to its former glory, housing a variety of touchscreen interactives, projected films and holographic displays that collectively tell the story of Kuwait through its fifteen rulers.
