One of the best museums I have ever been, not a museum person, but every now and then visiting them while traveling.. But this is definitely worth going. You will learn a lot about the history of Saudi-Arabia and also about Islam. and don't miss the park outside, easily You will spend half of a day there

More or less the only place in the country where you can find history, heritage, geography, geology topics. Presence of fair number of handicrafts as well

Really amazing to know the historical part of Saudi Arabia from the ancient until today. It was the land of the apostles. Displayed very attractive, supported by high tech devices, and good lighting effect. Very exiting should you visit at night.
