This week I went to the King Khalid exhibition which is going on this month at the National Museum Riyadh here are some pics I took:
The King Khaled exhibition was at the National Museum in its own separate building. They welcomed us very warmly and we were treated like VIP guests. I guess they don’t get many blondes coming in! We got our own english speaking well-mannered guide for the tour. The exhibition was beautifully displayed and had lots of interesting artifacts. There was photography of the Kings life on the walls, and the the rooms were divided according to the theme. The guide took us through the various rooms highlighting the Kings political career, achievements, hobbies, personal and religious life. They let us stay inside during the Ishaa prayer and we got to sign the special guests book. When I wrote something in it in arabic they were amazed :) They said the exhibition should be there for at least another month, and there are no special days for women or men only its allowed for everyone. Around the National museum theres a big park area with fountains, creeks and sitting areas, nice to walk in the evenings with the beautiful lighting.
