Museum had a friendly guide, explained Saudi and Islamic history in depth. The museum does a great job recreating old Bedouin houses and clothes. This museum is also known as the Abdul Raouf Khalil Museum.

Our group was very pleasantly surprised by the museum! The architecture is traditional Hijazi, we had an English speaking guide, and most of the exhibits are in English and Arabic. Don't miss this!
