Try internations for social groups (it is a very active website, lots going on), but for the Museum just use Uber, or the Saudi version Careem. Download the app onto your phone, very very easy to use. Enjoy!

Yes, they have bachelor/singles and family time slots for visiting. The opening hours on their website make no differentiation, best call them before going.
