  • Great Museum. Must visit for all residents, locals and tourists. A lot of people I met in Riyadh hadn't been to the museum and that's a real shame. The displays are excellent but lack technology like many modern museums. Highly recommended.
  • very spacious with lots of room to walk around, engulfed with a historic atmosphere and surrounded by scenic views worthy of meditation, deliberation, and photography. this is a nice place for families to walk and admire a recreational blend between old and new architectural structure which hold cultural significance. we spent over an hour walking around and barely covered all the sights. highly recommended for those who want to escape the city and think away from city noise, or for those who would like to just relax
  • Interesting museum to get the history in a nutshell starting from prehistoric period and finishing detailed information on hadjj and the most important mosques. Very interesting, clean and spacious. Great garden around with people having pick nick and kids running around, ponds, grass and real trees.
  • Awesome green belt area..free oxygen with colourful flowers, plants and trees.. Artifical Kinder water fall.. Children can enjoy with friends... Spend time with group of people here at weekends.. Strees free place ..Without spend a single penny.. U can enjoy a lot..
  • On of the best places one could visit while in Riyadh. The area was the site of old Riyadh ruling family and the old buildings are still magnificent. We could visit the king Abdul Aziz old cars museum. His old house and the museum in the premises. The palm trees adorn the place and gardens are nice to take a stroll.
