Best Museums in Muscat

Oman’s 5,000 year old history is well represented in Oman’s museums (found mostly around Muscat City) with everything from natural history, military history, maritime history, Islam, forts, stamps, currency, national dress, photography and science.

A planetarium forms part of the Oil and Gas exhibition in Qurum which organises star gazing evenings and features a 1 hour video show.  The museums are imperative for preserving Oman’s rich cultural heritage for the benefit of future generations. Entrance fees are inexpensive if not free. Be sure to check opening times because times may vary.
