Natural History Museum: Sheikh Abdullah Al Salam Cultural Centre

The Natural History Museum stands out from other museum of its type as it houses a range of living ecosystems which link together to showcase the wonders of the natural world.

Visitors are able to lose themselves in a huge living ecosystem of lush rainforests, mangroves and coral reefs, see different species of live insects and an underwater world in a million litre tank aquarium. They can also trace the story of the earth from the Big Bang, through the age of the dinosaurs to the present day.

With seven galleries covering 7,700m² – Arabian Landscapes, Brilliant Biodiversity, Ecosystems, Extreme Ecosystems, Our Earth, Our Place in Nature, and Prehistoric Life – the museum offers visitors a unique insight into the natural world. 

The Natural History Museum is part of the Sheikh Abdullah Al Salem Cultural Centre.
