If you're not traveling and are looking for an interesting activity in Dhahran...CG Mike Hankey toured the opening of the new King Fahd leadership exhibit at KFUPM in Dhahran on Tuesday, March 22, 2016 and had this to say:

"I highly recommend dropping by this event. This public retrospective on Fahd's life offers historical photos, videos, artifacts and books - all well organized and nicely labeled in English and Arabic.  It's extremely an extremely well put together exhibit and a rare opportunity.   Considering King Fahd's major role in the creation of the Royal Commission of Jubail and the first Gulf War, there's a lot to be learned that can be useful to understanding the context of the Eastern Province."

Admission is free and open to the public (men, women, children all allowed). Sunday-Thursday, 4 p.m. - 10 p.m.; Friday, 4 p.m. - 10 p.m.; Saturday, 7 a.m. - 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. - 10 p.m.  Open through March 31.

If we can ever be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.
