  • 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
  • I'm not a massive museum person, but I really enjoyed learning more about Oman here. Not too much writing on the exhibitions which makes everything digestible but still very informative. Definitely recommended.
  • 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.
