  • 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.
  • I had a very nice experience visting this museum. Enjoyed a lot. Entry fees Riyals 2 per adult. Photography not allowed inside the museum
  • Nice museum with few outside expositions also. Inside you can learn about Omani dresses, arms, houses... There is coins and stamps exhibition also. It has gift shop and coffee shop too. Good experience but it's prohibited to take a photo inside which is a bit pity.
  • Bait Al Zubair Museum, Muscat is a trove of history which is one should not miss to visit. Walking through the museum will take us to the rich history of Oman. No food is allowed inside the museum and the entry is restricted by ticket that you have to buy from the counter.
