This travelling exhibit was created and showcased on the orders of the late Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz as part of a series of exhibits to highlight the lives of the kings of Saudi Arabia. It began on the 1st of Jumada I 1429 (May 6, 2008).
The exhibit was designed to show the life and contributions of the late King Faisal bin Abdulaziz. It is a chronological exhibit with different sections focusing on his childhood and upbringing, his role as viceroy for King Abdulaziz in the Hijaz, his reign, and his martyrdom. It sheds light on the issues that were most important to him such as the development of the Kingdom Saudi Arabia and its people, unity in the Arab and Islamic worlds, and ending the occupation of Palestine. Some of his personal effects and interests are also included. The exhibition has travelled extensively within the Kingdom, visiting most of the regions and informing visitors of the pivotal and important historical period in Saudi and world history that was the life of King Faisal bin Abdulaziz.
