Create an itinerary including Museum of the Frankincense Land
Stroll through Museum of the Frankincense Land, a museum that documents the once illustrious maritime strength of the nation, and in particular the sea port of Zafar, which was supported by the spice trade. The well-organized display, featuring adequately labelled exhibitions, describes the downfall of the port. Kilometers of landscaped paths along the coast feature reed beds and frolicking geese, along with an archaeological site featuring ruins of the port's past. Children under the age of six cannot enter the museum halls. Plan my trip to Salalah with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

  • The museum is unique in terms of idea and allow an opportunity to explore the history of Dhofar. So much history and legacy demonstrated in a simple way.

  • Nice little museum, covering the history of Oman. Excarvations next to the museum are ok (if you are interested in history), but not extremely special.

  • Definitely one of the best places to visit in Salalah. The museum itself is small but filled with many interesting items that highlight Oman's rich history. The ticket is also very affordable and is charged at the entrance.
  • The museum is well kept and protected. Has a nice odour. Interesting information about the Frankincense a must buy before leaving Oman.
