What is amazing about that place is you can be at nearest point to airplanes and feel the body and steers. Tickets is cheap and comfortable place, bad things are no guider and instructors. No coffee shops or groceries.

Featuring on of the last Lockheed L1011 TriStar planes which are on public display this place is an absolute MUST for aviation enthusiasts! I heard about it in the internet and visited solely for the TriStar, however the museum is also featuring couple of other interesting aircraft.

The aircraft housed in there have been arranged and displayed in a chronological order with small setups which make the history understanding easier for kids. Moreover, there are a few simulators available for use on payment too. Besides, there's a cafe to purchase... More

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.
