The most evocative house in Kuwait City must surely be Kuwait House of National Memorial Museum Bait Al Watani. Outside the house is an Iraqi tank. The taxi driver, Assis, ensures I see it.

Walking through a dark corridor, I hear the horrors of war. Models of houses, people, war planes, tanks - all illuminated and timed with smoke and sound effects. Planes whiz by, bombs are dropped, houses set on fire, machine guns rattle, people shout. It feels very realistic.
