For museum-goers, there’s the Buraydah Museum and the Aloqilat Museum. The former offers a glimpse into the history of the middle region of Saudi Arabia in general, as well as into local culture. (Among other artifacts, you’ll find the big, white Cadillac used by King Abdulaziz on his visit to the city.) The latter features more than 10,000 rare documents related to the first people who lived in the region, as well as the tools and commercial maps used to navigate the surrounding area and beyond.
Open to visitors every day, this park, not far from the Buraydah Museum, offers visitors a green space to stroll, picturesque flower beds, a swimming pool, and countless places to have a family picnic. It is popular among people who live in Buraydah, so you can get a taste of local culture.
The Buraydah Water Tower is a popular landmark in the city and is open for visitors during the summer, free of charge. The water tower has an open floor at the top, giving visitors the opportunity to enjoy 360-degree views of the city. If you visit during summer, keep an eye out for the Water Festival. The tower is used as the central base for the festivities, which offer fun activities for the entire family.
