  • My family and I visited Bait Al Zubair on 03 June 2019 and enjoyed it. The entry fee is just right at OMR 1 and worth it.  more »
  • This modern and attractive museum give a really nice overview of the history and culture of the area. I particularly liked the traditional attire display and the swords and weapons. Very interesting. ...  more »
  • The museum represents in an orderly and well illustrated way (even with detailed billboards in English) the customs and customs of the various parts of Oman. Very beautiful the different traditional clothes, different from region to region, historical weapons and also the description of incense, source of wealth of the country before oil. Provided shop at the exit. PS photos inside are banned, as the signs say everywhere

  • This is a small cultural museum named after the gentleman who set it up. It is mainly wheelchair accessible, ask to go the opposite way so start at the exit and end in the reception. Then wheel back to the exit. There is a cafe on site. There are a set of toilets as well. There are good displays on traditional dress, firearms, stamps, coins and household wear. There is also a large art gallery on site which has temporary exhibitions. This is not the most obvious spot. So don't miss it! There is a large gift shop. There is free parking nearby. This is perfect to get away from the midday sun.
  • Wonderful museum. Don't miss this in Dubai. Best features were the traditional house and underwater pearl divers. Very innovative display.
  • Bait Al Zubair welcome those who wish to delve deeper into the Sultanate’s rich natural and cultural history. For art lovers, there are a number of galleries showcasing modern Omani art.
  • Traditional palace and halls , if your are interested in heritage and ancient cultures of the Sultanate of Oman then you can spend one hour or more inside and see some antiques , national costumes of Omanis men and women , maps and take a rest meanwhile enjoying 😉 your coffee ☕️ and 🥞 or brownie 🍪 in the cafe right there . My visit 📆 was on October 2018 .
  • Great place to visit. Staff were very helpful. They spoke very good english and were very friendly.
