This museum provides a very good introduction to the region, its history, culture and geography. For anyone visiting the archaeological sites in the area, here is where you can see the finest artefacts.

absolutely worth a visit, explains history of frankincense trading, stunning models of historic trading ships are displayed and the system of watering fields in the dry oman also well explained.

Small children (under the age of 6) are not allowed in the indoor areas of the museum, so we spent most of our time exploring the uncovered ruins of the ancient Al Balid. The area is beautifully presented, with fine walking paths around the ruins, but also areas where you can climb over the ruins if you want. And our kids did want. We visited at sunset and really enjoyed our stroll through the area and the helpful information on the interpretive signs.

This beautiful and informative museum does indeed tell all you might want to know about frankincense. But is also tells much, much more: The archeology, ethnography, geography, and history of Oman are brilliantly depicted. All displays and signage are in English as well as Arabic.
