The Museum displays the yesterday of Saudi Arabia. The Architecture, The Villages, The Locals life before industrialization. It also informs about the material (Composites) found in Saudi Arabia. We visited around evening time and it is open until late evening not like other Museums closing early. Here you can watch small clips of the country's history.

I love museums like it. Where you can listen to story, watching some historical episodes. The museum is huge and very knowledgeable for tourists who doesn’t know a lot of KSA it’s a good place to start discovering it. Historical district around is so ethnic and beautiful, hanging around can take a half of the day. But it’s definitely worthy.

I was pleasantly surprised when I visited the National Museum in Riyadh - all the more so that it was open until late in the evening, which suited me perfectly. Relatively inexpensive to visit and some impressive displays with good English language signs.

Great place. All features are mixed modern and traditional. Building materials and Architecture are local. Art exhibitions are beautiful. Breads more food and coffee venues.

Parking is straight forward, entrance is cheap, a huge collection of exhibits in a tranquil setting, well worth a visit. Staff are excellent and the best time to visit is early morning or late just before closing.
