The architecture design is very nice
very good in the eyes especially in the Fountain area
The mall offers too many well known brands
It offers a wider space for the customers.
well ventilated and clean..
problem is the parking space during night weekend.
but over all... a mall to visit....

National Museum

The history of Islam is the major focus of this museum, which consists of 10 galleries, courtyards and a section that houses fancy cars and other belongings of the founding king of Saudi Arabia.

Reviewed By LucyPBnJ - In Transit

The museum is pretty nice compared to other museums in the region but it's pretty randomly organized and some exhibits are pretty contrived. There's not a lot of text or information panels and some of the "historical" pieces or events feel manufactured. I recommend you look at the list of exhibit halls and pick what you want to see rather than follow the painted line on the floor - although the 'docents' have a hard time computing this. (Eg. Skip the piece on the cosmos and formation of the earth, it's all pretty silly.)

Kingdom Centre Tower

Reviewed By sharalDc - DC

The mall and Sky Bridge are worth a visit. The Sky Bridge is spendy but at night is worth the trip for the photos. The lower level of the mall includes food court and affordable stores. The higher you go, the higher the prices.

Masmak Citadel

This renovated 19th-century mud fortress looks like a giant sandcastle, and contains costumes, handicrafts, a sitting room, a courtyard and a well.

Reviewed By Walter_Oostelbos - The Hague, The Netherlands

Masmak Citadel is an unexpected gem in the old center of Riyadh. Beautifully renovated it gives a good impression of the history of Saudi Arabia, Riyadh and the House of Saud.

These ruins of the first capital of Saudi Arabia consist of walls, houses and palaces, some of which have been restored

Reviewed By V V - Maryland

Located to the northwest of Riyadh, Old Dir'aiyah is undergoing a makeover and expansion that provides a clear sense of the Kingdom's interest in encouraging tourism. An original capital of the Saudi Kingdom, Dir'aiyah Diriyah is considered the home of the Saudi royal family, and served as the capital of the Emirate of Diriyah under the first Saudi dynasty from 1744 to 1818.
