The Muscat Royal Opera House is well worth a visit! If the exteriors are already amazing (specially night time) you will be absolutely fascinated by the interiors! Make sure you join one of the guided tours in the morning, if you don't have chance to attend a concert,.

Amazing what they built here. Oman and its wise Sultan have invested heavily in developing culture and the result is a spectacular venue for the arts.

*****Dont miss this place***** Galariya mall has a lot of fancy staff, antiques shops, fancy restaurants for early evenings before you go to the opera shows. The opera itself is fascinating building. Must visit even if you are not attending an opera show. Check thier website www.rohmuscat.org.om Also Parking is available with 2 floors.

No shows on when we were staying but it's nice to visit and see the lobby. They wouldn't let us any further in though. Little mall next to it and some fancy restaurants that looked nice for evening.

I was a member for two years and all the shows are spectacular. If you need to feel you are not in the Middle East it is a great place to go. If you get a membership book it right away you will have front row tickets. Package or 5 and 7 shows are great

The Opera House is a magnificent building on the outside,and even more majestic on the inside! My wife,daughter and I went with some friends to see Bryn Terfel in concert last year. The mans magnificent voice was amplified by the terrific acoustics and the opulent surroundings. The Opera House is a must visit site if you are going to Muscat.... More

Couldn't access most of the interior but a lovely building and nice grounds. We enjoyed Frouchon restaurant - two visits in two days!
