“The role of public and private museums is very large. Many visitors go to these museums to learn about the heritage of the region. Makkah’s museums are part of prominent archaeological museums, not only in the Kingdom, but also around the world. They hold treasures and antiques that are more than 1,400 years old,” she said.

Each museum has a specific character that differs in its design and architecture from the other museums, some of which are dedicated to the holdings of the Two Holy Mosques, such as the Exhibition of the Two Holy Mosques' Architecture. “They exhibit the art and history of the Holy Kaaba and the Grand Mosque in their halls.”
