  • Several departments of history, everyday life, a photo gallery with historical pictures, a section with navigation instruments, etc., etc. Absolutely worth a visit. There is also a fine Café.

  • beautiful Omani traditions, significant collection is made with care and attention. Makes you realize many things of the past regional, although not very extensive. The feeling of visiting is very interesting, thanks to positive Omani guide eed ns Mahjed

  • You can cover it within an hour, maybe 1.5 hours if you do it leisurely. Its not the best museum and there's not a lot of write-up about the artefacts on display. Also many of the things are not signi...  more »

  • Nice place to visit as I spent a weekend in Oman. Has the historic features and is close by to the souk and other touristy parts of muscat. Very close to the water too. The national museum and the palace is only a short walk away too do you can enjoy a good few hours at this location. Very clean and beautiful. Definitely worth a cost when you spend the weekend in the city or country. Very cheap to get in too.
  • Outstanding museum! Comprises of sections in separate houses . In the model of the old Omani house, there is a small cafe bar where you can order refreshments. You will be served by my friendly Pilipino compatriots. I haven't been to the National Museum but I think Bait Al Zubair is already complete for an Omani museum experience.
  • Just loved the display of antique and heritage. The culture of Oman depicts in the display of the oldest ornaments, weapons. Nice collection. The effort in bringing the heritage under one roof has been done meticulously.
  • If you are a history lover (or not :P), then this is one of the must visit places to learn everything about the History of Oman. It has very very interesting information and stunning artifacts on display. The entry fee is 2 riyals per person and no photography is allowed inside the museum or food. One can approximately spend an hour or two at this place also enjoying the extra social and cultural activities that is organised here and the staff here are very very friendly.
  • The best cultural museum in muscat. They are organizing musical, cultural and social activities. In addition, visitors can see Omani culture through one hour trip around the halls.
