Ghalya's Museum of Modern Art, may in the future showcase more modern art than the Marco Polo statuary, but at the moment it is primarily a museum of Omani life in the 1960s/70s. and a very interesting one it is too. The museum itself is made from three small houses by the Mutrah Fort. Wander from one of the tiny rooms to the next and get a feel of Oman life in that period. The museum is well laid out with different themes in the different rooms and at the moment the front of it has a giant wall painting contributed by 100 of the country’s aspiring artists. The wall art is free to look at but at only one Rial Omani the rest of the museum is great value.
