Since the moment you go in, this venue makes you feel special... the sort of "royalty" special. You know when you walk into a place and feel a little out of place, because it looks like the places you see King and Queens photographed in? Well... this place feels like that, even if you paid just 70 Euros for a... More

The building is spectacular. The solutions used internally are really unique and it's incredible how they work. It's not a long visit and it's nice to insert this if you stay in Muscat at least for 2 days.

WE had the best of luck, because 1) the young lady who gave us our tour of the place spoke excellent English, could make herself easily heard, was so personable and charming . . . 2) (later that day/evening), we lucked into tickets to the evening cultural extravaganza out in the courtyard, a combination of "Cirque de Soleil"-type acro-performance, grand...

You can visit it in the morning with a guide. It's a short tour but worth it. I enjoyed the architecture and the style of it. Worth coming in the evening for night shots outside. Just make sure you choose evening when there's no show, otherwise cars will be parked in front of the VIP entrance.

It's a very impressive building inside and out, but our tour was a joke - I think everyone was left breathless by the super high speed that the tour guide raced through his lines, we weren't sure if he was ever taking a breath! It was ridiculous, but clearly not his fault, as soon as he finished our tour he... More

We arrived at 2pm just as a tour was starting. The entrance for the tour is the middle door opposite the car park. There was no staff or signs there, we were just nosey and got lucky so be aware. It's 3 OMR per person. The tour was genuinely very boring. The guide was monotonous and might as well have... More

Stunning building built of white marble, with white marble pavements. Grand open courtyard and pretty gardens and fountains. I understand is stunning to visit at night when floodlit

Strongly recommend visiting and even buying tickets to your favorite opera. The amount of marble used is impressive.
