The place is very nicely made. Things are kept very nicely with information to each item in display. Will get an insight of Omans history & culture. A reasonable entry fee which is totally worth the visit.

Use GPS to get there. Billy easy to find. Should be allowed to stay in the US you should have no problem finding a place to park. There is a small entrance fee. Enjoy
