Time Out Says

Based within the Ministry of Heritage and Culture is this gem of a museum. Highlights include the full size skeleton of a sperm whale, not to mention the stuffed bodies of a variety of animals still found across Arabia, such as leopards, wolves and a variety of reptiles and birds. If you have an interest in flora and fauna of the country it is well worth a visit. Amid the collections are fossils and bones thought to date back more than 270million years.
