Oman museums go cashless

All museums in Oman run by the Ministry of Heritage and Culture are now cashless.

From January 1, 2020, these museums will only be accepting card payments, the ministry announced on its social media channels.

The decision was made based on instructions made by the Ministry of Finance.

Museums run by the Ministry of Heritage and Culture include the Museum of Natural History and Bait al Baranda.
