  • For the price (1real) it is even better than National Museum. Of course assuming you are interested in technical or army stuff. You can come close to many things. I really enjoyed, need to come back to see the rest of museum as I didn't have enough time for everything.
  • Stunning place to visit if you happen to be in Oman! Loads of cool weapons, military vehicles, a large military ship, helicopters etc. are on display. You would learn a lot about the proud history of Oman.
