Whether you are an aviation geek, aspiring pilot, plane enthusiast or just curious like me, you will surely have a great time on this museum.

The Royal Saudi Air Force Museum or Saqr Al Jazira was established in 1999. It displays the development of Royal Saudi Air Force from its establishment in 1920s up to present.

If the exhibits are not enough and you want to experience more, there are also 3D presentations and flight simulator which children and children at heart can surely enjoy.

As for me, I’m more than happy and satisfied walking side by side these huge aircrafts and models.
