the regional museum of Ta'if, located in a building of around 1900, which served King Abdul Aziz as a lodging in the 1930s.
The rick history of Ta'if is celebrated in Shubra Palace which used to be the residence of King Abdul-Aziz as a place to preside the Cabinet during summers. Also, it was used as the headquarters of the Ministry of Defense and Aviation, and recently it is turned into one of the most important museums in the Kingdom.
The Palace is an attraction inside and out - the building itself is a fine example of old Ta'if architecture; it also contains the the Ta'if Regional Museum. The museum's exhibits provide a brief excursus into Saudi royal history.
