Opened on: April 2006
This house was transformed from the private residence of Al Arrayed to the house of poetry from every place, hosting gatherings of poets and poetry meetings, in addition to small facilities where the visitor can listen to Al Arrayed’s poetry, and readings of Arabic commentary. Visitors can also tour the library that contains many poetry books from all over the world, as well as the personal office of Ibrahim Al Arrayed and his personal effects.
The House of Poetry is a spatial memory dedicated to the poet Ibrahim Al Arrayed who enriched the Arabic language with his poetic success and his translations of Khayyam. They have been cared for through the purchase and restoration of the house with the generous support of Sheikha Suad Al Sabah, Arab Fund for Economic and Social development, Gulf Finance House.
