Good Collection

It's very well maintained and good collection of aircrafts. However, it needs to be kept open for longer duration on the weekends. Drinking water has to be made available.

Impressed to see real aircrafts and jets. Also I was surprised knowing about Saudi astronaut that was on discovery mission on 1985.

Before heading to the museum I checked the opening hours (sat 8-12, 16-21). Once arrived the museum was closed. The security staff was VERY rude and agressive....Very bad first impression....!!! I hope I will be more lucky this afternoon.....

It's a very well maintained museum with plenty of history anecdotes of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. It's old possessions of war planes, radars and even royal carrier. The museums like this... More

This is one of the hidden gems of Riyadh. Most people wouldn't think an aviation museum would be that fun, but this place is great! The displays are really well thought out on multiple levels, the space has been used very thoughtfully. There is a lot to see both inside and outside, and they have a 3D cinema and flight... More
