  • This museum is a must visit at least once a year. My family and I enjoy the Saudi heritage exhibition with its ethnographic display of everyday utensils, clothing and housing. The real favorite of ours is the Islamic section which contributes to the history of Islam; I recommend this section also to non-Muslims in order to gain information on Islam and its heritage in KSA. Sometimes international exhibitors display interesting collections as well.
  • Excellent place to get some learning on history. We thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it. It was just SAR 10 per person. Got a lot of useful information on almost all aspects of the history. Staff were very nice and friendly too.
