“A taste of Omani culture and tradition”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013

This is a lovely museum not very big as you might expect museums to be. Nevertheless it has a lot of character. And you can gather a lot of information from the displays offered in the 4 section of the museum. As you walk through the museum you get a taste of Omani culture and tradition. Worth visiting.

“A must-see in oman!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

A visit to oman is not complete unless you visit this museum! There are a lot to learn about oman history and tradition in the 4 sections of this museum and they are very informative. Operation time is 9 am to 5 pm (most museums in oman are closed by 1:30 pm), so you can enjoy it after visiting other museums; but be sure to spare 2 hours for visiting it.
Entrance fee is a little higher than other museums (2 OMR), but it is reasonable given the fact that is bigger than other ones.

“Rich or History”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

Great place to start with. I loved the idea of having different buildings for different type of history. Every house you enter in this museum has something to tell about Oman.

The tickets are affordable and worth it. The gift shop was very expensive.
