The National Museum of Saudi Arabia is a noteworthy national gallery in Saudi Arabia. Built up in 1999, it is a piece of the King Abdulaziz Historical Center in Riyadh. The National Museum was a piece of the "Murabba' Development Plan" to revamp the zone of and around the old Murabba' Palace locale for the Centennial Celebrations in Saudi Arabia. Accordingly the due date was set to mid 1999, leaving just 26 months for the arranging and working of the historical center starting with no outside help, in spite of the fact that thoughts for such a gallery had been examined since the eighties.
For the plan the lead draftsman Raymond Moriyama was motivated by the frame and shades of the sand hills of the "Red Sands" simply outside Riyadh. The west exterior along Murabba' Square takes after the delicate shape of a sandune with its format framing a sickle pointing towards Mecca. The west veneer opens into an Islamic history of the Arabian Peninsula. For the last exhibitions the guest enters the "Unification Drum" which has shows about the present Saudi State. The last exhibition outlines the two sacred mosques and the hajj. Furthermore there are two further displays for extraordinary shows.
