Bait Al Zubair Museum

This privately-run museum belongs to the Zubair family, who have over the years carefully put together and maintained a unique collection of Omani cultural artefacts, ranging from coins and household items to ancient weapons and clothing pieces. Souvenirs are availble at the adjacent gift shop.

Do & See

Muscat's geographical positioning in close proximity to the sea, desert and mountains provides visitors with an endless list of possible activities. With natural beauty, beach resorts, an emerging cultural scene (facilitated much by the recently constructed Royal Opera House) and historical relics, the nation's capital is guaranteed to keep travelers busy both on land (mosques, forts and souqs) and at sea (dolphin-watching tours and snorkeling, to name a few).
