Fodor's Review

This small history museum in the historic Mutrah neighborhood displays a few peices of contemporary art on the first floor, while upstairs are interactive dioramas depicting the history of Oman from ancient times of shifting tectonic plates to the frankincense trade routes to the history of Islam in the Sultanate, and a breakdown of the history of the current Al Busaid dynasty. Exploring the entire museum will take less than an hour, so it is a great place for a quick history lesson to better appreciate the context of Oman as a destination. The museum also has a nice café and shop.
