Beit Al Balad

Museum in Jeddah

Built in the early 20th century to be the British legation’s headquarters in Jeddah and serving in that role from about 1915 to the mid-1930s, Beit Al Balad is now a museum housing artefacts, photographs and ephemera documenting Jeddah’s history. The structure is a typical cream-coloured example of Hejazi architecture.
