  • Has many sections ranging from maritime history to coins collection to arms and weapons. Has a gift shop too, quite expensive though.  more »
  • History and culture of Oman goes at 1 Museum, is useful. Exhibits are necessities, armor, clothing, decorations, stamps, coins, furniture, camera, photo, painting, stamp and coin-operated hobby is collecting showing is like. Where have I see them quickly without spending too much time admiring the exhibits, so people pretty much take time and might be. Kids are so bored. And not rent a car or taxi stands near the port city off a little bit, so moving is so restrictive. So hard to go to strangers is good in places not smiling, but evaluation has four points.

  • Historical statues are available! Skeletons of animals like dolphins, a small model of the whole country Oman , a small waterfall etc Good place!
  • No other meusem can explain culture than this one love it ...
  • A great place to learn about the history of Oman
  • Highly recommended place to visit whether you're a local or a tourist. A museum showcasing many photos, artifacts stories and handicrafts in a beautiful setting. The museum is within an actual old house that has been renovated but still maintains a section where you get a glimpse of what the house and rooms were actually like back when it was inhabited.
  • Tiny museum. We learn Muslim women wore colour dresses few years ago . It was beautiful, hope it will come back one day.
