The museum is located in an old fort in a military site. You get an idea of Omanian history and can view lots of military equipment.

Very good displays of the history of the Armed Forces and Oman in general. 1 OMR entrance or free as I was with an ex - Army officer and we had a very good guide from the Royal Guard.

If you are interested in knowing about Oman's history of Armed forces you can visit this place and spend 1 to 1 and half hour. Our army guide was very polite and helped us in understanding the armed force history, culture. Entry fee is minimal.

Apart from the very friendly Omani tourguide who was in the Royal Army, the whole layout of the museum gives you insight in the history of Oman's Army. Thought was put into explaining the different influences and who fought against the Omanis. It is a...More
