Roads of Arabia

As a global company, ExxonMobil values and promotes different cultures around the world.

The ExxonMobil Foundation and ExxonMobil Saudi Arabia Inc. are supporting the promotion of the Saudi Arabian culture in America through the “Roads of Arabia” (RoA) exhibit, a collection of archaeological materials discovered at sites in Saudi Arabia that is touring several major American cities. Some of the rare objects in this exhibition, which the Saudi Museum of Holy Places shared with RoA, have never been seen before outside of the Kingdom.

Initially organized by the Saudi Commission for Tourism and Antiquities, RoA had prior showings in Paris, Barcelona, St. Petersburg and Berlin. The U.S. tour began with an exhibition in the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., between November 2012 and February 2013.
