The Natural History Museum and Desert Park is a venue that provides people with a chance to learn about the flora and fauna of the Arabian desert, while at the same time having a relaxing and fun time.
If people get to know the great variety of plants and animals and the amazing ways in which these have adapted to life in a dry, hot climate, they will start to respect and enjoy these gifts of nature.
A children’s farm was opened in May 1997 to provide city children with a chance to have close contact with farm animals. A Breeding Center for Endangered Arabian Animals started functioning in February 1998, but this is not open to the general public, because the animals need peace and quiet to breed.
Towards the middle of 1999 the Arabian Wildlife Center was opened, where people can observe and enjoy all the various species of animals that are found on the Arabian peninsula.
