Collection Exhibition Catalogues

These exhibition catalogues can be a valuable tool for enjoying an exhibition, both during the museum visit and later, in the comfort of home. The al-Sabah Collection has a well-deserved reputation for producing quality catalogues that capture not just the objects in the exhibition but the spirit behind it – the reason that those specific objects were selected to represent a specific theme.
