The exhibition, titled Roads of Arabia: Archaeological Treasures of Saudi Arabia, includes nearly 500 items from 15 major museums of Saudi Arabia. They were selected from important discoveries in the country's excavation work over the past 40 years.

From the Stone Age to pre-Islamic and Islamic times to the founding of the modern Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the exhibition presents the traditional Arabian culture and its interactions with other cultures beyond the Arabian Peninsula.
