One of the most beautiful time i have ever passed in my life during visiting this respected place. Very good informative for physical science students.
This museum has two sections, one that stays the same which mostly displays the history of Saudi Arabia and you can go in there for 10 SAR only. And the second section you can visit if there is an exhibition e.g. Chinese history, Korean, Japanese... etc. And the way they display it is just BEAUTIFUL! They allow a chance to interact some of the objects you see in the exhibition through a big scream to see the beautiful details of it. I just love this place because it’s convenient for both adults and children to learn and discover other’s history and culture besides ours in Saudi Arabia.
