About the Museum
The world is evolving, transforming and changing. And Saudi Arabia is changing at an even more rapid pace. At the King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture, Ithra, human potential is seen as the greatest source of change. The Center is focused on accelerating that potential through encouraging creativity, inspiring minds, and empowering talent.
Ithra is an all-purpose culture destination. It has created an environment for transformative experiences to unlock the power of potential through mastery in arts, science, literature and innovation. The facilities include an idea lab, library, theater, museum, energy exhibit, art gallery, children’s museum, and a knowledge tower housed under one roof to provide visitors with an immersive and transformative experience. The Center itself is an iconic landmark building, which reflects its purpose as a beacon for knowledge to illuminate, inspire and catalyze the potential of the Kingdom’s vast talent pool.
