The Exhibit Archive Of Ushaiger


The locals’ massive trachles to preserve their objects of historical and archaeological value are quantified into Al Salem Museum, which is standing on the middle of the village. Getting inside the exhibit archive requires a few silver coins from the old world. And I must say ten riyals is an underprice with the handsome antiques floating around.

The Al Salem Museum is not housed in an exuberant ziggurat like the popular ones but in a small building divided into different stratums of arms, household articles, currency, and other various items of handicraft. Looking at each of the relics gave me an idea of how the old and not-so-old world revolve. Furthermore, these artifacts mirror how far the country has progressed.

My favorite though is the porcelain section. The psychedelic effect of the ceramics’ intensely hued nature was so indulging. They remind me of Sinbad’s magical lamp–like there is a jinn in front teasing me which to pick.

Visiting the museum is very educational as the past became alive in my eyes; it left an indissoluble impression on my mind.

This well-maintained museum is one of the signs that the kingdom is truly stretching its efforts towards bringing their tourism into the mainstream.
