Time Out Says

Oman got the world-class museum it deserves when this flagship cultural centre opened up in 2016. Designed with modern design standards there are multimedia exhibits and high-tech approaches that bring the history to life. Although slick and modern the items on show are of genuine historic interest and include boats, replica bronze-age tombs and scale models. From rare coins to boat wreckages there is a greater variety and quality than any other local museum. Plus the on-site art gallery is well worth a tour as well.
