  • This was my second visit to the museum and this museum mesmerizes me everytime. All the historical facts are very well displayed. We go back to that era. Entire history of Oman is beautifully written and explained like an engaging story. The museum is very neatly maintained. We actually feel that we are on the battlefield. Salute to all the brave people who laid down their lives to resurrect Oman.
  • Huge and very well maintained place. Enjoyable trip for kids. All items having descriptions on them. Worth visiting. Staff was welcoming and guided properly.
