The Al Faisal Museum is a resource for academics, intellectuals, artists, designers, and anyone with an inquisitive mind and an interest in Islamic and Arab art, history, and culture.
We provide a space to find inspiration, to delve into the past, to broaden horizons, and to examine the objects and collections that give form to our history and symbolize our culture and values. The Al Faisal Museum seeks to encourage a dialogue exploring the fields of “Islamic art” and “Islamic history” with the goal of enriching contemporary Arab culture.
Our aim is to add a narrative, among the many existing narratives about this unique civilization, from an Arab Islamic perspective.
OPEN SUNDAY - THURSDAY 9 AM – 3 PM
The King Faisal Center for Research and Islamic Studies is located next to the Faisaliah Hotel and Tower. From King Fahad Road, we can be reached by walking through the King Faisal Foundation, continuing up the stairs, and passing the square to the mosque.
Guided tours are available during opening hours free of charge. Tours typically last 30 minutes. We welcome a group of up to 30 people. Booking must be made at least two weeks in advance. Please contact: PR@kfcris.com
