Must-See Museums in Muscat
The cultural epicenter of Oman, Muscat is home to museums as varied as the city itself—you’ll find tributes to everything from art and history to traditional crafts. Here are some of the best to add to your itinerary.

Bait Al Zubair Museum
Located at the heart of the Old Town, the Bait Al Zubair Museum is one of the most-visited Muscat attractions; it houses the extensive private collection of the Al Zubair family. Inside, a series of colorful exhibitions showcase traditional Omani crafts, furniture, weaponry, household items, and clothing, as well models of an Omani-style village and souk.

Land of Frankincense Museum
Those exploring the Al-Baleed Archaeological Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site, will want to stop at the park’s Land of Frankincense Museum. You can learn all about the fascinating history of the ancient Islamic city and the importance of frankincense, one of Oman’s most lucrative exports, and see archaeological finds from Al-Baleed, Sumahram, and Wabar. 

Sultan's Armed Forces Museum
Housed in the imposing Bait Al Falaj Fort, the Sultan's Armed Forces Museum is one of the most comprehensive military museums on the Arabian Peninsula. It showcases an enormous collection of military artifacts, weaponry, and vehicles, most notably a bulletproof Cadillac once belonging to Sultan Qaboos bin Said. 

The National Museum 
The National Museum, which opened in 2013, chronicles Oman’s cultural history and heritage and showcases a wide collection of artifacts relating to the Sultanate of Oman. The museum also includes exhibitions on Omani arms and armor, currency, prehistory and ancient history, among many topics. 

Natural History Museum
The focus shifts to Oman’s geological wonders and biodiversity at the Natural History Museum, where highlights include a taxidermy display including Arabian leopards and wolves; a gigantic sperm whale skeleton; and a botanical garden filled with native flora.

Travel to Nizwa & Jebel Shams Day Trips

Travel to Nizwa & Jebel Shams "Oman Grand canyon"

A'Dakhiliyah Governorate occupies a distinctive location on the western slopes of Al Hajar Mountains (the slopes of Al Jabal Al Akhdhar) towards the desert in the south. A'Dakhiliyah Governorate has played a role of great significance in Oman’s history, particularly with regard to the spread of Islam in Oman. Nizwa, the capital of Oman in the early days of Islam, was the cradle of ardent intellectual activity and produced generations of Omani scientists, scholars and historians. That’s why it has been called “the egg of Islam”. Its towering historic castle still stands today as well as many forts, castles, ancient mosques and other beautiful tourist sites. Nizwa District is also famous for its many old houses.
