The museum includes archeological displays as well as cultural artifacts. Plan to stay several hours. There is an excellent display related to Islam that is educational for non Muslims

I went here not expecting much but it was wonderful. It starts from the beginning of time and goes through present with a Saudi/Islamic perspective. Very interesting. You can also go to the building across from the museum to see the King Abdulaziz cars.

I don't know the price. You could check on their website. I was an American Tourist and I was allowed in, but I was also with a Saudi family
