As you are visiting Oman's region linked to a long tradition of frankincense trade, this museum is a must. It's divided in two exhibition halls - Maritime Hall and Historical Hall, both full of descriptive models and exposed in a lovely way. At the same time the museum isn't too big so visitors don't get tired. You can visit both halls easy in 1 - 1 1/2 hours. Linked to the museum is also the UNESCO site of Al Baleed old trade port and still under ongoing excavations. Open from 9 am to 9 pm every day except Friday/Saturday when it opens only in the afternoon from 3 pm to 9 pm.
