Museums Tips (17)

Beit al-Balad (Municipality Museum)

Built in the early 1900s in the traditional Hijazi architectural style, Beit al-Balad served as the headquarters of the British legation in Jeddah from World War I until the 1930s. This turbulent period saw Jeddah and the Hijaz change hands from the Ottoman Empire (nominally ruled by the Hashemite Sharif), to the independent Kingdom of Hijaz ruled by the Sharif, to Saudi-Wahhabi occupation in 1924, to full annexation to Saudi Arabia in 1932. The British had a significant role in reshaping the map of the region, starting with the highly romanticised story of Lawrence of Arabia, to breaking the promise of a unified independent Arab country made up of former Arab-Ottoman lands (think Sykes-Picot, Balfour Declaration, etc.), and to leaving a weak Kingdom of Hijaz to be usurped by the Saudi dynasty (in return for other less publicised favours, including assuring a safe passage to British ships in the Red Sea). None of this history is viewed favourably by locals, but a lot of it was likely made by the British legation in this very building. Beit al-Balad was one of several buildings used by the British legation, but it is the only one that has survived. It was restored in recent history and turned into the Municipality Museum of Jeddah, dedicated to the history of the city.

Naseef's House

or Bait Naseef is one of the oldest houses in Jeddah. Naseef is a well-known family in the western region of Saudi. They used to open this house as a museum for visitors, though now the Jeddah Municipality is closing it for maintenance.
it used to be the residence of Sultan Abdulhamid, the Ottoman and King Abdulaziz. It depicts the traditional architecture and lifestyle of Jeddah decades and perhaps 100s ago. It consists of 3 floors where the ground floor is open for public, has a water spring that can be seen through a glass board, a 3D map of Balad and surrounding areas and other rooms for display. It has 107 rooms and a camel can get in to fetch the fresh food up to the top! very feasible!
In summer festivals, there would be a traditional Jeddah's music band for traditional performance. It's fun.
No entrance fees.
