The Minister of Culture explained that the Tree of Life Visitors' Center marks the start of multiple projects to come, noting Shaikh Salman bin Ahmed Al Fateh Fort , which the Royal family history museum and café that have been attached to it did not change any of Fort historical features, but have made an additional attracting power. Through the development of the Al Riffa Fort as a museum exhibitions' site telling the story of Bahrain's history through the different ages, the Ministry of Culture aims to take the lead in promoting and enhancing cultural tourism projects, which are the foundations of the Ministry's strategies and the country's new development blueprint, Vision 2030.
