“Well worth a Visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

My son and I visited this museum and enjoyed it very much. The displays are nice. We learned a lot about the military history of this Country. It is worth a look even if you don't care about war memorabilia or weapons. Nice displays. A guard escorted around the exterior section of the museum wear tanks and even some boats are on display. Be sure to check hours before going.

There is a great deal to see at this Museum and we did not have time to see everything but a treat is in store for my next visit to Muscat when I shall see the remainder of the museum.
