AlFelwa and AlJowhara Museum is one of the most prominent museums in the Kingdom and is situated in Dammam's Al-Nozha neighborhood. It occupies a space of 5,000 square meters and displays more than 500,000 pieces of cultural heritage.

Abdul-Wahhab Al-Ghunaim is the name behind the establishment of this museum. Al-Felwa and Al-Jawhara Museum was eventually established in 1996 as a result of his love for collecting historical artifacts from 1973. Al-Ghunaim gave the museum the names Al-Felwa and Al-Jawhara of his two daughters, which respectively mean 'little pony' and 'precious things.'

The Prized Collection

The museum mainly displays artifacts from Saudi history, such as antique furniture, equipment for farming, old coins, objects from various Islamic eras, household goods, and firearms. The ten sections of the Al-Felwa and Al-Jawharah Museum are interesting to explore. There is also a section just for auctioneers. It's a privilege for many to become a part of this museum as an auctioneer!
