Takwin: Sciences and Innovation


Muslim scholars played a prominent role in preserving human civilization. They took the greatest care of applied sciences, collecting knowledge sources, setting rules and regulations, and competing in authoring about these sciences. They left an immense heritage of libraries filled with shelves of manuscripts. This exhibition showcases some of the manuscripts preserved by the King Faisal Center for Research and Islamic Studies (KFCRIS) in scientific fields such as medicine, astronomy, mathematics, and engineering, most of which contain illustrations.


This exhibition is taking place at King Faisal Center Library (3rd floor), across the square from Al-Faisal Museum (How to reach us).

Open from Sunday to Thursday, 9 am to 3 pm. Admission is free.
