Although it's not big museum, but it still entertaining one, yo can find there a lot of King Abdulaziz (the founder and unified of Saudia Arabia) Collectibles correspondences, and the most fascinating thing is his collection of old classic cars.

We visited the centre as part of a delegation so were provided a guide as we navigated our way through the facility. The items are arranged in a logical manner and the descriptions are in both Arabic and English. This place is worth a visit.

This is one of the best organised places in Riyadh. The visitor has the opportunity to see almost all of the Kingdom's history, through exhibits, videos, map and real constructions. Fantastic place for families!
