Every developed capital has its national museum and the King Abdulaziz Historical Center and National Museum is the Jewel in the Crown of Riyadh’s tourist offering.
Undoubtedly the top sight in Riyadh, this museum (opened in 1999) is done up with the latest technology and is very accessible to visitors, with almost everything available in English.
There are so many video presentations and mini-theatres that you could probably spend an entire day here doing virtual tours of Madain Salih or watching re-enactments of the Prophet Mohammed's battle of Medina.
Highlights include a kiswah cloth that once covered the Qaaba in Mecca.
