King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture is an institution that inspires passion for knowledge, creativity, and cross-cultural engagement.
The Center aspires to be a powerful stimulus for social development and cultural engagement, reassuring Saudi Aramco's commitment to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and its people.
The Center is being constructed atop the oil-rich Dammam Dome, making it both a national landmark that commemorates Saudi Arabia’s first discovery of oil and a leading educational and cultural institution. Housed in an iconic building that is itself a work of art, the Center will offer a world-class museum, public library, historical archives, children's educational center, conference and performance facilities and more. It will be the highlight of Saudi Aramco Cultural Park, which will also include a major community-oriented oil museum and corporate conference facilities.
The Center ground-breaking ceremony was held on May 20, 2008 during the King's visit to Dhahran for Saudi Aramco's 75th anniversary.
