This museum is located in King Saud University – the oldest in Saudi Arabia – and highlights cultural and historical artefacts that have been discovered and collected through various excavations conducted by the university. It’s important to note that as King Saud is a men-only university, only men are allowed in. The museum was initially set up to familiarise students with archaeology as an academic practice, but is now open to visitors. The museum has two main halls: the first focusses on the Faw and Rabdha excavations that took place in Northern and Southern Saudi Arabia in the 1970s and includes artefacts that date back to Roman and Hellenic times, such as statues of Apollo. The second hall houses antiquities including coins and statues, many of which are still being analysed, which suggest that developed civilisations have been living in the region for centuries. Visiting hours are from 8am to 2pm, Saturday to Wednesday.
