The main museum galleries tell the history of the peninsula from creation. The museum has started hosting international touring exhibitions- so it is worth checking what they have on.

Excellent museum that is interactive and well-presented. Takes the visitor through history of the kingdom, get a tour guide to learn so much more - beautiful art, traditional wood carvings, and history of the people. Highly recommend it!!!

Sorry, I just saw this question. I think it was 10 Riyals. I saw many women in the museum, and there were expats among them.
