  • We went to the Maritime Museum in sur in part of our trip to Oman. Perhaps our expectations were somewhat high, as we are accustomed to other museums in this direction (Hamburg). Anyway, to get an overview of different types of ships - above all the typical Dauhs in different variations - and nicely served. We can recommend the Museum for a short trip - best combined with a stroll through sur.

  • The shipyard of Sur is one of the last places in the Middle East where we produce these traditional boats. Interesting to see the men who work in the construction of boats. Even the small museum-presenting figures of famous dhow built in the past-it is interesting

  • If the yard is opened you can rotate between boats into buildings and observe the laborers at work: very interesting. It is one of the last places in the Middle East where we produce these traditional wooden boats, although today they are no longer used by fishermen but only by collectors, enthusiasts or for public events. In the Museum you can see replicas of famous vessels of the past built here.
