National Museum

King Saud street – Al-Murabba’ District

The National Museum aims to be an up-to-date reference source for the history of the Arab Peninsula, where visitors can combine learning with enjoyment. Its programme also contributes to social cohesion, reinforcing the feeling of belonging to Islam, with its spiritual message and great civilization, as well as to the ancient roots of Arabism. the Museum’s two-storey modern building accommodates the latest in museology and display techniques. The building, covering an area of 28,000 sq. m., consists of eight main galleries and two others for short-term exhibits, plus the major facilities of the Museum. Touring the Museum would enable the visitor to journey from mysteries of the birth of the universe, through the prehistoric times and ancient civilizations, and to the early proto-Islamic (Jahiliyya) era. Then comes the advent of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him) and the Islamic civilization, followed by the Saudi States. Last of all comes the gallery concerning Hajj and the Two Holy Mosques.
