We visited the centre as part of a delegation so were provided a guide as we navigated our way through the facility. The items are arranged in a logical manner and the descriptions are in both Arabic and English. This place is worth a visit.

I must say that this is easily one of the best attractions in Riyadh for families and singles alike! Very few people know about it and I advise you to go there and see what a grand Five Star Marvel this is! :-)

Not a bad place to spend an evening and get a insight of the history of Saudi Arabia. Very well maintained with an entrance of 10 SAR its not too bad a place to visit.
