  • An excellent way to spend the day especially with the limited options available in KSA. The museum is vast and well organised, and clean. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes and be ready to spend the ...  more »
  • I could have spent the whole day in this museum. If one fatigue's, he or she can get refreshments and a snack. 
  • When visiting Riyadh city you must visit the King Center historic Allah where there are many civilizations and the heritage of the Kingdom. And can be visited with family.

  • One of best places to visit in Saudi Arabia, specially if you are with family and kids.
  • A must visit for a tourist to know about history of the royal family. Also, don't forget to take a camera with you.
  • I liked it, amazing green area and lovely historical buildings.
  • Good lovely park to be on family picnic
  • This place is great. Without a doubt worthy of your visit specially during winter season. The only problem is the lack of shops or cafe nearby.
