This museum located in the picturesque muttrah port area near the souq is an absolute gem.

One could get lost into the insights it gives into the history of Oman and its people especially with its ancient global links makes a visitor have a new found respect for this beautiful land and its people.

A special word of appreciation to its passionate director, Mr. Malik Al Hinai who has been instrumental in its setting up and running.

We spent about half an hour at this museum. That's all you'll need but it's worth popping in to look at the photo history of the Oman.

This was an excellent museum detailing the history of Muscat starting with the geology and first settlements. The information is presented in a variety of different formats including with photos and art, posters, interactive screens and videos. It provides an excellent insight into Muscat and Oman's tradition and culture and I found the information on Oman's military and political history and recent modernisation particularly interesting.
The entrance fee is nominal and well worth visiting for upto 2-3 hours. It is conveniently located a short walk from the Muttrah Corniche.

We found this museum by accident and went to kill some time before the souq came alive. The museum offers a surprisingly complete overview of the history f Oman, from prehistoric to modern. In simple and clear language and images we got a clear view of the development of the sultanate. A nice little museam to visit for a small price.
