Create an itinerary including Museum of the Frankincense Land
Stroll through Museum of the Frankincense Land, a museum that documents the once illustrious maritime strength of the nation, and in particular the sea port of Zafar, which was supported by the spice trade. The well-organized display, featuring adequately labelled exhibitions, describes the downfall of the port. Kilometers of landscaped paths along the coast feature reed beds and frolicking geese, along with an archaeological site featuring ruins of the port's past. Children under the age of six cannot enter the museum halls. Plan my trip to Salalah with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

  • Nice little museum, covering the history of Oman. Excarvations next to the museum are ok (if you are interested in history), but not extremely special.

  • Very nice small museum. One room details the maritime history of Oman, and the other room shows displays from prehistory through the present. It is located in an area that has been inhabited for centuries. Definitely worth a visit.
  • The museum is well kept and protected. Has a nice odour. Interesting information about the Frankincense a must buy before leaving Oman.
  • This museum showcases the rich culture and civilization of Oman. However if you are a fact finder or a guy who is keen to know about the Omani history, then it's not to miss art gallery for you. Moreover you will also get amazed by the transformation that the country had went through in the last four decades. This is a must visit spot for tourists who are coming in
  • Lovely cool and modern well laid out museum Souvenir shop was poor and no cafe Well I never found one
  • The most attractive and magical place i ever seen. Great security system.
