National Museum begins SMS service to boost programs

The National Museum at the King Abdulaziz Historical Center has launched an SMS service to provide comprehensive information on its activities, programs and visiting hours.
The museum’s program, which featured several cultural, entertainment and heritage activities, including technical workshops on painting and drawing for children and school students, drew huge crowds, especially during school break.
“The launching of the SMS service represents an important step toward raising awareness among members of the public about the museum’s activities and programs,” said Jamal bin Saad, director-general of the National Museum.
“This initiative will contribute to creating a strong and interactive relationship between society members, as well as encouraging them to visit the museum, which reflects the cultural dimension of the Kingdom," he said.
Bin Saad said that anyone can easily log onto the official website via the “contact us” icon on the link [email protected]
The National Museum consistently hosts visiting exhibitions, as well as social and cultural activities, scientific lectures and symposiums, including family and children-oriented programs and activities.
The museum organized an educational and art gallery on the Islamic arts and sciences at the Princess Nora University in mid-April. The gallery featured 30 artistic items, which varied between archaeological mock ups (models), pottery-wares and glassware, in addition to textiles and carpets.
The exhibition witnessed a heavy turnout by members of the teaching staff, students and university employees.
