Located in the heart of this historic city, close to Al-Masjid an-Nabawi (the Mosque of the Prophet), the Madinah Visitor Welcome Centre was designed to be a friendly and informative experience for visitors. As they travel through the spaces, visitors would experience the sights, sounds, smells and spirit of Madinah and be immersed in content-rich multimedia installations that will tell Madinah’s story and express the essence of the city.
Cultural Innovations has developed three distinct areas, namely:
Madinah – Past, Present, Future: how Madinah has changed since the time of the first settlers and the city’s progressive development today
Madinah and the World: how Madinah has influenced the world and how people from other countries and travellers to Madinah over the centuries have contributed to its spirit, knowledge and development
The Prophet’s Mission and Legacy: the story of the Prophet will be uniquely set in the context of Madinah’s environmental and archaeological heritage.
The Madinah Welcome centre has been designated a ‘flagship’ project by the Governor of Madinah.
