I wasn't too sure what to expect to be honest but this is a museum definitely worth visiting while in Riyadh. There are so many planes to see and to touch and sit in - a very hands on museum. There are planes on display outside of the museum and then inside many more. There is an upstairs section and... More

We went here with our two young boys not expecting too much. We had a surprisingly good time. Too bad we couldn't actually enter the planes. But the boys loved it. It's well maintained inside and the staff were friendly. It won't be a afternoon full, but definitely more than a hour or so.

This was my second visit to the museum as I was taking a friend of mine. Though I have spent 12+ years in Riyadh, but was not aware of its existence until a friend of mine informed me about it. I feel the local government body should promote this place. The museum had a very good collection of aircrafts both... More

If you are interested in aviation history, this is a must-stop for you. The museum highlights not only the aircraft, but the role of pilots and the royal family as it grew from a desert kingdom to a regional power. The outside displays were impressive, although some were in need of repair. They had a nice L1011 that you can... More

I had heard a lot of times for this place and although my home is nearby, I always postponed the visit. Till last Saturday, thanks to a friend who loves airplanes. We have been there late the afternoon. The light and the weather (too cold) was not helping us for an outside walk around, but the interior worth a lot.... More

If you have any interest in aircraft, this is a brilliant place to visit! You may have noticed the ex Saudia Airlines Tristar from the ring road, but there is loads more to see.. A selection of civil and military aircraft outside and man pristine, well displayed ones inside the modern glass fronted building. If you're lucky, you may get... More
