Explore the insides of the gate to the old fortress walls

Time Out Says

Literally built in to the gate, or at least the fortress walls, the actual site of this museum is living history itself. It is part of the old defences built to keep invading armies out of Muscat and has history humming through the small corridors. Truth be told there are other centres with a greater number of exhibits and more to see, but if you’re hoping to take your learnings beyond the surface there are some fascinating photographs and small scale models to study further.
