If. like me, you are a history and culture buff, then a couple of hours at this fine military museum (built in a real Omani fort) are well worth your time. Do not bring loved ones who do not share the same feelings. The emphasis...More

This is a fascinating museum, providing an overview of recent Omani history as well As showcasing the Armed Forces. A young Naval officer showed us around and was the highlight of our visit, providing a window into Oman with courtesy and pride. Highly recomended

Very well worth visiting an interesting summary of Oman’s history and their armed forces. Lots of planes, tanks and even a ship. We were made very welcome by a naval officer with an extensive knowledge of languages.
