The Taxidermy Museum
The museum has a collection of more than 200 mummified animals, including wild animals, birds, sea animals, predators and many more.
The museum has a great history behind it. Saudi citizen Mohammad Yahya Al-Mosayier, who received visitors and told them about the museum, said the museum belonged to his family. His uncle Ibrahim Al-Mosayier started the project as an early hobby, when he used to mummify birds.
Al-Mosayier said this hobby became a passion for his uncle and he traveled abroad to learn more about mummification. He had obtained certificates in this field, which made him, on his return to Saudi Arabia, train his brothers and nephews, until they launched the mummification museum project.
Al-Mosayier pointed out that all the objects that were mummified in the museum were embalmed naturally, after they died either due to illness or a change in the weather, during the transportation process, or due to their old age. He claimed the animals were not deliberately harmed or killed.
The jungle of Jeddah is one of the most ideal places for children, because bringing children closer to animals is very important for acquiring new educational and sensory skills. This improves and develops their sense of compassion and kindness towards animals, in addition to learning to assume their responsibilities.
Children discover many animals at school, but seeing them in front of them consolidates information and enriches their knowledge. Plus, it’s a great opportunity for parents to teach their kids about animal rights. There are several activities for children in the jungle of Jeddah that allow them to feed the animals and interact with them in the safest way.
The Jeddah Jungle also includes several interactive activities. The Luca Land with more than 50 types of pet dogs is for all dog lovers.
archery; go-karting; adventure zone; The farm; Land of Reptiles; The aviary; Elephant enclosure; Lightning Garden; Paintball; jungle track; and roaming acts are a few other attractions.
Jeddah Jungle also stands out for providing visitors with an integrated experience, as it includes many restaurants and cafes, ice cream parlors, in addition to several other facilities, such as parking, golf carts, scooters, prayer rooms, nursery, toilets, etc on.
