Good collection of planes and helicopters both indoor as well as outdoor. Reasonably well laid out with some chances for hands-on sitting in gear and pulling levers. Includes a small 4D theater with short movies. Bring your own food & snacks, the cafeteria was not operational at the time of our visit.

Lots and lots of old aeroplanes, fighter planes, helicopters etc. Big enough area for a nice stroll and on the way you can read about the history of Saudi Arabian air force.

Finally something to see in Riyadh. Apart from the zoo and the malls, Riyadh is a boring place. This Museum offers some history and engineering to show.

It was nice to see all the aeroplanes on display. Unfortunately, the ones outside have been damaged somewhat by the weather. Sad that no restoration attempts have been made on any of them, just left out to rot. There was a small cafe,serving tea and coffee. Small entrance fee. Adults 10 sar, children 5 sar

Though the place seems like it has some interesting stuff inside, we were not allowed to enter. Outside the gate, it is mentioned that the place is open from 8-12 in the morning. We had reached there at 1010 and the guards at the place seem to have had enough for the day, since they simply told us that the... More
