The museum has all kind of civilian and military planes exhibited for the public in a large outdoors space as well as an indoor facility. The staff is helpful and allows you to discover the history of Saudi Arabia through this collection of planes.

The relics, air crafts, helicopters are well maintained. Some of the helicopters can be accessed and you can literally sit in the seat and take photos

Very interesting place to see. We were shown around the museum by a Major in the Saudi air force and given a gift 'key' to the museum as a memento. As a group of women we had to make special arrangements to visit but worth it.

Had been to this place a few times. My Son loves Airplanes, so he was too excited to visit this place. Entrance fees are cheap. Best place to visit is in the evening as a lot of airplanes are outside. A simulator experience is also available for a additional fee. Overall a nice plane to visit.
