  • Its awesome!!!All those pistols,hunting guns,grenades,tankers made me melt because of excitement!!!5 stars!!!
  • just back in the UK after a couple of weeks in Muscat.The highlight of the stay for me was a visit to the Sultans Museum. The quality of the exhibits is superb, The Military guide Yousef was knowledgeable and patient.The outside exhibits were a complete surprise in their quality and quantity. I would like to add I am an ex REME armourer and not easily impressed.
