  • This private museum is an insider's tip. A good impression of the country and people and their way of life can be gained in a short time, without having to be indoor for hours.

  • The place is beautiful, rich and interesting collections. The Omani traditions is perhaps richer than objects and information of one present at the National Museum. There is also a permanent exhibition of contemporary artists. On the day of our visit the temporary exhibition space was empty. Also interesting is the building of the coffee shop with typical Omani and wind Tower House

  • Very interesting and well structured museum covering all aspects of Omani culture. Well worth a visit.

  • In the middle of old muscat is this complex. It's 2 riel entry fee in. There is few buildings with it. It's a bit of a mixed bag with some parts more interesting than others. Thankfully there is AC in every room. The most interesting part for me was about the previous rules and old photos of Muscat and Oman. If you plan to spend a day or even half a day in old Muscat it's worth checking out.
  • Nice museum on Oman history and culture, usefull to figure out how Oman people lives there
  • best destination for traveler
  • Situated near Muscat old town. The ground floor exhibition in the main building has an upstairs that isn't immediately obvious. Extensive display of antiquities and cultural exhibits. Well labelled so a tour guide isn't essential. Decent little café (with nice coffee and sandwiches) with good toilets. Plenty of parking & cabs will be passing to hail regularly. Set aside 2 hours and combine with another 1 hour walk round Muscat old town palace and castles (outside view only). Ideally visit in the afternoon then spend the evening in the Mutt rah Souk 5 kms away. The souk is closed between 13:00 - 17:00. Entry 2 OMR per person.
  • Not much to see
