Beautiful place.. lookout for their drawing/designing competitions. My school brought us the drawing forms for designing mosque lanterns (it was 2010 I think).. I won and I've been asked to visit the place with other winners where we got to put the design into real action where they brought us real lanterns to paint <3
It was an awesome experience, they brought us the painting tools that we needed ( I got my own though) and they served us refreshments, and the young ladies who worked there were very friendly :)

Only real permanent cultural tourist attraction in Jeddah
Jan 2015 • Family
Quality of the visuals is extremely good. You can almost breathe the common Arab's life as it was in yesteryears. Safeya Binzagr is a passionate artist formally trained in Cairo and has produced masterpieces in virtually every medium of visual arts - Oil, Water Colour, Pencil, Crayon etc.
Costumes and body adornments are also on display. It is difficult to imagine a good gift shop at this Museum & Training Academy but quite a good one exists.
Check visitor days and timings as it was open to the public only on Wednesdays.

A three decade journey with Saudi heritage
Jun 2013 • Friends
Best known secret in Jeddah is that there are art galleries. One of the must-see ones is Darat Safeya Binzagr. Built to be a permanent exhibition space for the paintings of highly acclaimed Saudi painter Safeya Binzagr, the Darat Safeya Binzagr Gallery continues to exhibit a huge selection of the artist’s works. The gallery is divided into several themed spaces including rooms for her nuptial series, popular children’s games collection, fishing and hunting collection, daily activities and occupations, architectural heritage, watercolours, pastels, graphics, traditional costumes and jewellery. After returning to her hometown of Jeddah after a stint living in Egypt, Binzagr became nostalgic for the Jeddah she knew as a child as she witnessed it changing so rapidly. She turned to her paintings to recreate the city she had once adored. The gallery also hosts sporadic visiting exhibitions featuring works by both local and international artists.
